|Rustic Cabin/Lodge Furniture Craft Shop
An 'online' tour of our Northern Michigan wood yard and
|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
|Pics above: the logs are brought to the band saws where our craftsmen, knowing what cuts are needed, mill the logs
to special dimensions preparing them for their use in creating our furniture.

boards/slabs, have been dried and are waiting for their transport to the workroom to be made into furniture.
