Local Reclaimed Hardwoods

Arizona is home to some incredible species of hardwoods most of which we obtain from local saw mills that specialize in reclaimed urban lumber. Some of these trees fall during the monsoons, others from property developments, or landscaping waste. Its a laborious time consuming process to take the raw log to a finished piece of furniture.

Below you will find some examples of the wood species that we work with.  Not all are always available or some might not be suited for all projects.
