Cut straight from an American tree.  Using woods that are locally grown and abundant will help protect the world from unsustainable harvesting. Trees are one of our most useful and reliable natural resources, and when used responsibly, removing trees is a natural part of natures cycle.

Natural Finish

The secret to a natural finish: natural oil, tree resin, and beeswax. 
These three materials work on leather, wood, food, and skin.  When combined, they will protect materials from moisture, damage, and harmful bacteria.  They are safe for us, safe for nature, and super easy to maintain or restore worn out wood.

Natural Glue

Hide glue is natures glue: a natural glue made from animal proteins.  It is as strong and reliable as plastic-like glues, but with added benefits.  This glue is re-usable!  If it hardens, it can be re-softened and used again; it never goes to waste.  If your furniture is glued together, it can be un-glued for repairs!  This glue also absorbs into the wood a little differently, which is preferred by some woodworkers when fitting up joints.  And my favorite part: it’s friendly to nature.

So why doesn’t everyone use it?  It has to be heated up.  Yes, it’s inconvenient.  But, if that means your favorite chair can be repaired when your new puppy chewed off the leg, then it’s worth the extra effort!
