FAQs

Where and how do you source your wood?

We source our wood 20-50 miles from NYC and deal exclusively northeastern hardwoods.  We have forged relationships with various tree cutters and they bring us trees that have had to come down for a variety of reason, i.e., diseases, storms, danger to homes, etc.  The trees are brought to our yard in Hartsdale, NY where we mill, dry and stack them.

How many types of wood do you have?

We work with about 25 different species of wood.

Do you sell just the slabs?

What is the price of your slabs?

Pricing of slabs depends on the type of wood and the dimensions of the slab.  Please note that we sell our slabs in their full lengths.  Once purchased, we can mill to your specifications.

I see on your website that you offer DIY.  How much does it cost? Can I make I make a king-sized platform bed with a live edge headboard and metal storage underneath in one day?  Can you deliver it that night free of charge?  I live in Trenton, NJ.  Can I do DIY on my old furniture using your facilities and equipment?

Whoa there, friends.  Yes, we do have a DIY program in which you can take part in the making of your piece.
