From Montana Woodworks®, the largest manufacturer of handcrafted, heirloom quality rustic furnishings in America. Montana Woodworks® is an environmentally friendly log furniture and rustic furniture decor company located in the West Kootenai, in the far northwestern corner of Montana.
All logs are harvested from dead-standing lodge pole pine. Select items are from cedar and hickory. Dried by the forces of nature, there is no moisture in the logs. The rustic quality of the cracks, or checking, adds character to the simple beauty of the log. In true handcrafted fashion, draw knives are used to hand peel the bark from the logs. The skip-peel procedure leaves just enough color from the inner bark to give the appearance of natural texture and color contrast, giving each piece that rustic furniture appeal. One assembly technique used in making the rustic log furniture is mortise and tenon joinery, known for its strength and heirloom quality craftsmanship. All rustic furniture items are meticulously handcrafted, from peeling the lodge pole pine logs, to assembling the products. Handcrafted in the mountains of Montana using solid, American grown wood, the artisans rough saw all the timbers and accessory trim pieces for a look uniquely reminiscent of the timber-framed homes once found on the American frontier. Treat your friends to drinks at this rustic style bar with foot rail. The rustic beauty is sure to be a conversation starter extraordinaire!
