Every bunk of lumber that comes through our doors has been responsibly and sustainably sourced in the Midwest. We need our ecosystems to stay healthy so trees can continue to grow, and keep our air clean by soaking up carbon. We partner with suppliers who share our values, and put ecosystems first.
It has light to dark chocolate brown tones, and provides strength, hardness and durability without excessive weight. It's generally a straight grained wood, with the occasional swirl or curly grain. Unlike most woods that darken with age and UV exposure, walnut will eventually turn a lighter shade. Please be mindful of this when purchasing pieces that will receive direct sunlight.
White Oak has a light brown, blonde appearance and is naturally water-resistant. This wood is very hard, durable, heavy and coarse-grained. When the goal is peace and calm, we go for white oak. There is something rather serene about the golden tones and the waves of grain.
We use a hard, white maple that has a light, more consistent tone than some varieties. It's similar to Oak regarding sturdiness, shock resistance and weight. With its diffused, smaller pores, it has a smooth even tone.
Cherry is a strong, fine-grained hardwood, displaying pink undertones that may occasionally contain small brown pith flecks. Its rich coloring will eventually darken with UV exposure, giving it a silky, dark patina. We like to pair items made of cherry with black accents. The versatility and warmth will be a welcome addition to your home.
