All our furniture is made of white cedar (Thuja occidentalis), a species renowned for its beauty and durability. Left outdoors in its natural state, white cedar will mature to a splendid silver gray, but can also be stained in the color of your choice. Natural or stained, white cedar will enhance your environment for years to come.
The unique properties of this warm, classic wood species have made it a popular choice for over a century:
All log furniture is subject to a natural process called "checking". As wood releases moisture, checking can occur across or through its annual growth rings. This normal result of wood seasoning occurs only on the surface of the wood, and does not affect the wood’s structural performance or integrity. In fact, we believe these characteristics only add to the natural beauty of your furniture. Checking can range from very slight slivers to cracks running the full length of the log to the heart of the wood. Checking is completely normal and in no way affects the integrity of the wood or the strength of the furniture.
