Since 2001 we have designed and built custom rustic furniture. With our roots starting in log style, rustic furniture but have evolved to using wood slabs. We strive to handcraft one of a kind functional but artistic custom furniture. As I said we started out building rustic log furniture using eastern red cedar. Kelly harvested all the log from trees that have lived their life. The early style was simple log beds, tables, and vanities were the main custom furniture pieces. But today our artist design rustic style wood furniture that highlights the natural wood grain pattern in the wood slabs we use. Whether it is a rare big leaf maple burl, redwood burl or claro walnut wood slabs the options are limitless as custom rustic furniture.
We specialize in rustic furniture that features material sourced from nature. This style incorporates stick, logs, and other materials found in nature for a natural look. Our furniture makers craft a variety of natural wood furniture within the rustic theme. One of the top questions we get are does the wood dictate the design or does the design determine the wood. The truth is it can be both depending on the project. The main thing is we want to stay true to the wood by highlighting its natural beauty. Whether it is a rustic table or custom rustic bathroom vanity we desire to showcase the wood. We try to source our material from dead standing trees or logs and root systems left on the forest floor. We are not tree huggers but we desire to be environmentally responsible in building our custom rustic furniture. Because we use real wood there are always challenges but we embrace them and actually seek them out. We seek out gnarly live edge wood slabs, driftwood, twisted juniper, and stumps. The more imperfections such as check, knots, holes and more the better. Because of our designer and furniture maker the undesired wood and making it desired.
