    The tens of millions of board feet of Douglas fir that supported the Southern Pacific trestle across the Great Salt Lake account for the bulk of the inventory at Trestlewood, a salvage operation with offices in Idaho and Utah. Salts and other trace minerals in the lake water produce unusual color values in the wood--gray to purple to gold--also renowned for its strength. Since 1996, the company has supplemented its stock with mammoth beams extracted from docks and warehouses, redwood from commercial pickle vats, a ready supply of disused farm buildings, sawmills and telegraph poles and massive logs of heart and white pine lifted from northern riverbeds.
