Description

Young Redwoods in Fog

Young Redwoods in Fog courtesy of Wikipedia.

There are three species of redwoods. Two of which, Coast Redwoods and Giant Sequoias grow in the Pacific Northwest. They are descendants of the giant conifers that ruled the forests during the mega fauna age of dinosaurs 140 million odd years ago. At that time, the Earth’s climate was warmer and wetter than it is today. At that time redwood species grew throughout North America, Europe and Asia.

Over time and thanks to successive ice ages, including the last one that ended about 10,000 years ago, the remaining three redwood species have been reduced to three small, distinct regions, each supporting one of the species. Each of those three species is endemic to their respective region.

All of our Redwood is harvested from the stumps of Old Growth Redwood trees that were harvest in the 1800’s. None of these living giants are harmed to make your dice. Redwoods are truly a sight to behold. These behemoths grow to gigantic proportions in the temperate rain forest of the Pacific Northwest and are the largest living organisms in the world. Each tree is a biotope of its own supporting a cavalcade of life from the bottom of its roots to the upper most reaches of its canopy. Having had the privilege to see the old growth redwood forests myself, so I can attest to just how high that canopy is. The scale of these trees is at least an order of magnitude more than what your brain expects to see in a tree.

Redwood tends to be light weight and a reddish brown color. The wood must be as light weight as possible else these massive titans would not be able to support their own bulk. Since we use reclaimed stump wood what we get is highly figured with large sweeping curls, burl eyes, and a holographic iridescence in the grain. Each blank we machine our dice from is first stabilized with resin to add necessary weight and strength to the wood. Each set in this particular run of Redwood Burl dice has been inlaid with one of several of our metal inlays.
