Take the time to visit with History and Philosophy pages to find out more about us and what we are working towards. In the Shop Tour section we will detail many of the methods, materials, and techniques that we use to construct furniture. Also, we will show you around the woods where we cut our logs, the mill where we saw our lumber, and the kiln where it is dried. We invite you to respond with questions or comments in the Contact Us section.
