Our furniture is assembled using round mortise and tenon joinery – a method proven over hundreds of years to be simple and strong.

The Glacier Country Collection features a truly remarkable finish reminiscent of the Grand Lodges of the Rockies circa 1900. First craftsmen remove the outer bark using an old-fashioned draw knife while simultaneously leaving the inner cambium layer for increased texture and contrast. After assembly, each piece is completed in an eight-step professional finish process that applies premium grade stain and clear lacquer for a stunning, low maintenance finish. The result are dark, rich hues and warm tones to provide an extraordinary appearance.
Our logs are harvested in the Kootenai National Forest with Lodge Pole Pine chosen due to its superior strength and because it is generally straighter. Montana Woodworks prohibits the use of heavy equipment in the harvest of our logs as machinery would damage the surface texture of our timber. After harvesting the standing dead timber, the logs are stored until sufficiently dry for use in the building of our furniture. We use the mortise and tenon style joint for maximum strength. For the tenon, or the peg, we use a machine called a Log Woofer which works much like a very large pencil sharpener leaving a tapered end. We carefully sand each piece of furniture before, during, and after the assembly process to smooth the furniture s surface ensures the highest quality product possible. During the assembly process, we apply a powerful adhesive into the mortise, or the hole, before joining the two pieces. After assembly, the items are again sanded and carefully re-inspected.

Customer reviewsSturdy log table, signed, glad I took a chance on this
Very easy to assemble. 4 lag screws that are hard work, though. Arrived with box wide open, but, a sheet of foam and underlayment wood protected the top from scratch and dent mostly. Has a dent in the side as there is no side packing. Its gorgeous and baby soft smooth. Butcherblock solid pine top. I just rubbed down with 3 coats of linseed oil. Drying for 3 days between the 2nd and 3rd coat. And, 2 coiats on the legs on the same evening as They are sap infused already. Tried not to leave any on surface so it absorbed really well. I like the natural butcherblock look it has Weighs 90 pounds. One leg is more gimpy than the other 3, slightly crooked looking. I like that it is signed by the woodsmith on the underside. Compared to the other tables reviews, I m glad I took a chance on this
