The lifecycle of Natural Flats - a journey from the woods to an heirloom piece for your home.
The grain pattern within the forked section of a tree is unique. The annual growth rings twist and interlock as two limbs grow together. Lumber mills reject this portion of the tree as it is more difficult to work with and considered a defect. Bill looked at the tree forks discarded after logging with a different perspective. Knowing this wood held profound character and beauty, he chose to salvage the forks and turn them into beautiful pieces that could be be used in the home. All wood used at Natural Flats originated from tree forks Bill salvaged while conducting sustainable woodland harvests in Iowa.
