    90 - North Pole Lumber Sourcing

    Have you ever considered the volume of lumber that Santa's Workshop must go through in a given year? What kinds of woods do they source and why. Moreover how would they source all that wood sustainably and yet still maintain secrecy? This is something only a lumber nerd thinks about really...and luck you, I have thought about it. A lot.

Great

Technically head over heals compared to other podcasts. Not just a chat to chat podcast.

Technical and economic understanding of wood

This is a great resource for learning how to source lumber as well as having an understanding of good use cases for particular species of lumber. Information from this podcast helped me find and go to a sawmill for the first time and feel good about the price of my purchase.

Great show!

I’ve listened to the “other” podcast and this is so much better! Shannon is so good at explaining things in layman’s terms and I’ve learned a lot in just a short time listening. None of the corny jokes, just real useful information.
