Products And Services

What’s made in BC, makes BC! Proudly milled in Courtenay, B.C. Canada šŸ


What we are known for best. We carry Full dimension rough lumber traditionally circular sawn on-site with local retail sales open to the general public.

We normally stock to carry standard board sizes up to 14′, as well as creating customĀ sizes which can be made to order if log availability permits.

Please stop by in person, call or leave a price quote request for pricing and availability of the wood product you are looking for.

Common uses for our RUF lumber products: Fencing, Decking, Sheds, Pergolas, Post and Beam Timbers, Siding, Raised Garden Beds, Structural Blocking, Marine and Industrial applications, and much more!

All lumber and timber products are milled from sustainable second growth Douglas-Fir grown on Vancouver Island.

*We do not cut any Cedar products due to sub par wood quality in second growth cypress/WRC compared to D-Fir, little local demand due to over inflated timber prices, as well as environmental concerns due to byproducts created when milling.


We sell mill ends (slab wood, edgings, trim ends) cut to firewood on site from small loads to use camping to standard pick up truck loads.

As well, we deliver 2 cord loads with our firewood truck locally within the Comox Valley. Please contact for more information.
