All of our funtiture is custom made by hand per order and our wood is supplied from an FSC Chain of Custody certified company that is also FSC certified by the Rainforest Alliance. The entire process from when and how the wood is cultivated and harvested to how it gets shipped is carefully monitored. This provides the most credible link between responsible production and consumption.
Listed below are the woods we typically use in our furniture but you may request a different wood of your choice and we will try to find a responsible source for you. Other woods that we have used in our projects include Black Walnut, Ribbon Sapele, Indian Rosewood, Mokey Pod and Podocarpus.
The woods we use are highly insect resistant because of their extreme density and many are even rated as Class 1 or Class A fire resistant. Because of their internal structure and tightly interlocked grain, these woods do not rot or decay like typical domestic softwoods and should last outdoors for 30 to 50 years or longer.
