Our rustic log beds feature ethically sourced eastern red cedar logs and branches. These trees are plentiful in our area and have lots of natural gnarl and knots. While cedar trees are in our area, they also are not hardy and tend to die. Allowing us to harvest dead-standing cedar trees to build our rustic log furniture designs. In 2001 Kelly designed and built his first log bed out of dead-standing dogwood trees. While a huge success, we quickly converted to using cedar trees in our build log furniture.
Rustic log bed
Natural wood bed
Our signature series features the best of the best rustic log beds by Kelly Maxwell. Thus only the wildest and most unique logs find their way into these natural wood beds. Our live edge furniture designs utilize natural wood. We ethically sourced through salvaging from the forest floor, selective harvesting, and dead-standing trees. Thus allowing us to be environmentally responsible and assuring each furniture piece a one-of-a-kind.
The outside or natural live edge of these logs are used to crafted many styles and types of natural wood furniture. Rustic beds, rustic vanities, natural wood countertops, rustic fireplace mantels all feature the natural live edge, creating what is also known as live edge furniture. A unique southwestern area rug by American Dakota will complement any of our custom rustic furniture.
Live edge bed
Along with rustic log beds, Kelly Maxwell also designs and builds rustic furniture from live edge wood slabs. These natural wood beds are unique as well as functional. Like log beds, no two live edge beds are the same but are available in king, queen, and California king.
When designing rustic furniture, it’s always good to think outside of the box. For example, our Mountain man series features basic logs that have little or no gnarl. While solid and functional, they are a simple log bed design. These are trees that have been dead for many years lying on the forest floor, allowing for the sapwood to decay away, leaving the heart of the tree. These rustic beds are scarce as we only collect a few logs a year.
