What is Gnarly & Natural Log?
*Logs: The logs are graded into Natural Log and Gnarly Log. The Gnarly Log is rare and comes from stands of trees where elk herds have wintered and eaten the bark and rubbed the felt off their horns against the saplings. As the trees grew these chew marks and horn rubs turned into elaborate gnarly configurations. The distinction of using natural or gnarly logs creates our log style preferences.
* Lumber: All of our panels are solid wood aspen, no laminates! The lumber used is kiln dried to moisture content below 8% for optimal quality. As the lumber is graded, it is sorted into Natural Panel and Wild Panel or colorful grain. The distinction of using natural or wild grain lumber in our panels creates our panel style preferences.
