A remarkable piece of furniture starts with remarkable raw material.
Threshing Floor boards come from century old pioneer barns. We partner with demolitionist to acquire this worn and heavily distressed wood in order to build the tops for all our furniture. These unique boards are rich in colour, grain pattern, and character.
The other parts of our furniture are constructed using grainery boards (on the interior of the barn) and 4" x 4" wind braces (small beams that support the big timber) as they also possess original distressing (no re-sawing of original faces).
The softwood we use (pine & hemlock) has a lot tighter grain than most new softwood, and is comparable in durability to hardwood once our epoxy base has been applied. We use pine and hemlock as it has more appealing marks and colour. The lightness of the wood also makes for a lot easier moving. The species you choose has no impact on price.

From start to finish, we take a hand-made heavy duty approach to the construction of our furniture.
