Eugene, OR–”Recently, the Portland Wholesale Lumber Association (PWLA) held a “Logs to Lumber” meeting for members at Zip-O-Log’s mill here.

PWLA members divided into separate groups and were guided through both the sawmill and the lam plant where they were able to get insight from their respective group leaders into the log breakdown process of lumber and other products.

Zip-O-Log’s group leaders included Nick Lake, Nate Lively, KayCee Hallstrom, KelCee Hallstrom, and Joe Honochick.

Zip-O-Log Mills Inc. has been a leading provider of quality Douglas Fir products for more than 75 years. It is a long length cutting sawmill with the capacity to produce up to 52′ in length, according to the company’s website. Because their products are produced for exposed structure applications, Zip-O-Log specializes in No. 1 & Better, free of heart center timbers. Zip-O-Log also produces boxed heart timbers.

Anti-stain and application of a clear wax base end seal is applied to all rough products and they offer anti-stain treatment on surfaced products as well (all surfaced timbers are end sealed). Other available options to protect products during handling and shipping are paper wrapping, bottom boards, and stickers with lath or kiln stickers on every layer if the customer requires. Zip-O-Log ships by rail or truck.
