I started Fabulous Furniture in 1973, but I started working with wood long before then. When I was twelve I used to do my paper route and then ride my bike over to the park and look for fallen trees. I would carry them home in my press basket and carve them into forms. I still have some of those original pieces!
We do all our own logging, looking for trees too big and misshapen to be used by other loggers. Many of these trees are rotten or dead, and both of these “defects” produce incredible grain patterns. We do the milling, sawing and drying right at Fabulous Furniture in Boiceville, NY. Nothing is stained or dyed: all variations occur naturally in the wood.
