Join us for a 'tour' of our shop, wood yard and facilities
Our furniture building shop, with it's adjoining wood yard and lumber mill, is locate in Northern
Michigan near the forests and woodlots where we find all of our hardwood stock. The hardwood
is all brought to our facility as raw logs, where our workers pick out only the best wood
specimens to use in our beautiful creations. The logs that make the 'final cut' are sliced to size
on a huge, commercial band saw, where our workers can use their years of experience and
knowledge to pick pieces that will be perfect for specific applications. While cutting the logs and
burls, our craftsmen keep a special eye out for blemishes, or other faults in the wood, that might
make for a poor finished product. These lesser grade woods are eliminated from the woods
used for the furniture, as only the most perfect cuts are used in our finished pieces.

The three pics above show a small number of the logs that are in our yard waiting their turn at being turned into
rustic cabin and lodge furniture - not all the logs will prove to be 'perfect' enough for our beautiful pieces.

Please just place your cursor over a pic to read an explanation of what is in the picture - thank you
