Handcrafted in Montana using solid, American grown wood, each piece is finished in the unique "Glacier Country" collection style reminiscent of the Grand Lodges of the Rockies, circa 1900. First, we remove the outer bark but leave the inner, cambium layer intact for contrast and texture. Then each piece is hand-crafted by the Amish of Rexford Montana in the traditions of their fore fathers. Final steps include staining and lacquering in a professional ten step spraying process, making this piece as unique as it is functional. The mortise and tenon joinery system employed by our artisans has been used for millennia to join multiple components into a single, solid and strong assembly thus ensuring a truly heirloom quality piece that will last for generations to come. 20-year limited warranty included at no additional charge.
