What is unique about the wood?

All the wood I use in the construction of these pieces has been rescued from buildings (barns, sheds, houses, commercial buildings and schools in various towns) built in 1880's to around 1935. Most of the lumber is found at estate/farm auctions as the people in the country knew the value of lumber and never threw anything away when they tore down a building. So they stored the wood in another barn until they thought they would need it. The lumber is usually rough cut meaning is was cut with a large circular saw turned by a large belt and powered by a tractor. Walnut, oak, fir, ash, hedge, hackberry, and cottonwood comprise most of the material. Obviously it is well seasoned having been stored in barn lofts for years.

What about shipping?

The price of actually shipping a piece via commercial carrier is usually prohibitive and I will not guarantee the condition of the item upon delivery.  It will probably be cheaper if you drive here and pick up the item.  That way you can see other items that are finished and available for sale. I have delivered items but variables such as fuel costs, size of item, whether or not the location is near other customers accepting deliveries, time away from shop etc. etc. etc all affect the fees charged.  Call or email for particulars if interested in having a  specific item delivered.

What else do you have to offer?

These farm /estate auctions also yield some good antiques at times so I have included pictures of legitimate antiques I have on hand.

What if it is marked SOLD?

Most of the items I make can be closely duplicated if I have more of the same materials used in that item. If you see an item and would like more info, email me and I'll check to see if I have the materials on hand. Remember, an exact duplicate is not possible as wood varies (knots, grain, slight differences in individual boards, numbers of nails bolts and screws) but I can always make another that will closely resemble what is pictured.
