As we all know, wood is a 100% rapidly renewable resource. Pritzker Prize winning Austrian architect and AIA Gold Medalist Glenn Murcutt said “One of the few sustainable materials is timber”. In the production of our wood countertops we use wood from sustainably harvested forests with much of it certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. This process is still in its infancy so not all lumber is certified due to complications in the procedures and storage of the lumber. We also offer reclaimed lumber which has been gathered from construction tear downs and river beds.
