Rich Mitchell has been in the lumber business over 17 years and has always had a love and appreciation for the beauty of reclaimed wood, specifically sinker cypress. With his vast knowledge and experience, he decided it was time to open his own business. He also wanted to share a legacy with his two sons, Steve and Corey, who also had experience in the business. Together, they opened their doors in January 2017 with their own lumber mill who they affectionately named Mossy Head Lumber Company in honor of the beautiful area of their location in the panhandle of Northwest Florida.
Retrieving reclaimed wood, also referred to as sinker logs, from the bottom of rivers and swamps is not an easy process and can be very dangerous. Logs were transported via waterways in the early 1800's and many were lost as they sunk to the bottom. Divers must locate these logs and many times, manually, bring them to the surface. Extreme caution and attention must be given to insure their safety. Once these sinker logs are brought to the surface, they are transported to a loading dock and delivered to the mill.
Once at the mill it is the expertise of the sawyer that determines the maximization of each precious log's potential. Very few sawyer possess the master sawmanship skills of Rich Mitchell that enables him to bring out the ultimate beauty of each and every sinker log to fulfill the specific and stringent requirements of our customers.
