Each piece has a different process. One of our goals as a business is to achieve a "tree to table" experience. Living in New England we are fortunate to be surrounded by trees. We often have a few large trees within our own yards. Occasionally those beloved trees being to die, or become a hazard to your home. Rather than having the tree cut down and thrown in a wood chipper, never to see the light of day again. We have the capability to turn that tree into a beautiful, functioning piece of furniture that can now live on for generations to come. Keep in mind this is a very lengthy process, but well worth the wait.
