Tour of DVO Specialties, Figured Maple & Cedar Specialty Products

When: Tuesday 5 PM, Sept 13, 2022

Who:  Donny Van Orman has a lifetime of manufacturing specialty Maple and Cedar products at his Elma operations. 

Where: DVO Specialties, 179 S Union Rd, Elma, WA 98541 (East of Elma off State Highway 8: From Elma take South Union exit; From Olympia take Heise road, left on Heise Rd S to South Union, right on S Union to mill.  GPS &/or tour signs will take you to the mill)

Details: This mill tour will show/demonstrate what he looks for on your tree farm; how he manufactures it; what products/markets he is serving; and even some furniture & novelty products he makes with otherwise low value tree’s, or even Cedar salvage/long butts.  Not a modern high tech operation, but some really cool products, and an equally cool character you will enjoy.
