In late 2000 we started building rustic log furniture out of eastern red cedar. But in early 2001 we jump into our first craft show in Gay, GA. We loaded our beach tent and log furniture in a borrowed trailer and set up at the Great Gay Marketplace. At this first show, we displayed and sold simple log coffee tables, accent tables, table lamps and other small log furniture designs. So the adventure began and the first show was a success and a custom log furniture studio as born. With success, we decided to explore building other custom rustic furniture designs. Such as a log bed and rustic dining table and chairs. These were both well received. The first log bed was built out of dead standing dogwood trees and the dining table was cedar planks a with log base.
Custom rustic log furniture
Our custom rustic log furniture is unique, artistic but functional furniture. A log vanity is one of our most popular pieces. This style bathroom vanity is great for powder rooms or smaller bathrooms. We handcraft a real log vanity using a log from a tree, unlike others that trim a basic cabinet with small logs. Because we use natural wood no two pieces are alike.
Custom log furniture
Also, a log bed is popular. They can be found in natural real log made from may wood species such as cedar, juniper, and others. The price range can vary greatly depending on the wood species or whether it is a real log or milled logs. Also, the experience of the custom furniture maker can affect the price. Milled log beds averaged a few hundred dollars to real log into the thousands. Some decide they would like to build a log bed. We offer a how-to video on building a log bed. The skill learned can also be used in other rustic log furniture. Other wood furniture such as log coffee tables, accent table, lamps, log stair rails, and a log mantel can be made by learning these basic woodworking skills.
Juniper log furniture
Today we build most of our custom rustic furniture in the log style out of cedar or juniper. Both are stunning woods that have a natural beauty. We also combine live edge wood such redwood burl, Claro walnut, and Bigleaf maple burl wood in our custom wood furniture. Kelly Maxwell our custom furniture maker always welcomes custom orders.
