With the grain

Without trees, there are many things in life we can not, could not, and would not be. As wood workers it is our fundamental awareness to support the natural cycle and beauty of a tree, and as a collective, the forests.

A skilled process utilizes the tree as a raw material in the most profound way. Without skill, we waste.

Years of Collection

The slow cure process maintains the appearance, the color, and the integrity of the fibers throughout the depth of the trees heart. The lumber stock of a woodworker identifies the connection to the material. It identifies the truth & harmony. The complete care of the raw material by which a craftsman exists proves the respect that is so well deserved.
