There are properties that are unique to log furniture that you should know about before purchasing. Our furniture is made from small diameter logs. Because we use the whole tree in our log beds and furniture, the logs may have cracks or checks. This is a natural phenomenon that is part of the drying process of logs. As our logs are dried for use in furniture, the wood shrinks in length, width and radially around the heart of the tree. As tension develops in the wood due to shrinkage, the log splits to relieve tension. These splits or cracks are known as "checks" in the log and are visible in many of the posts, spindles or rails of our log beds. All logs that contain the heart of the tree will develop these lengthwise cracks or checks and the check will not go deeper than the heart. Consequently, the structural integrity of the log is compromised very little. The checks are natural and are part of the beauty and character of log furniture. All of our log furniture is made from Northern White Cedar, Pines or Quaking Aspen.
Our hand peeled cedar, northwoods pine and beartooth aspen furniture all have a limited lifetime warranty. Rest assured, we will repair or replace (at our option) any defective part that fails due to material or manufacturing defects as long as you own that piece of furniture! The rest of our lines of furniture come with 1-5 year warranties.We welcome you to join the thousands of happy and satisfied customers of The Log Furniture Store.
