  • Your chair is made from a piece of Alabama Red Oak. The lumber yard is 15 miles north of Tims work shop and the red oak forest sur-rounds the area. We have tried to reduce the displacement of the lumber, by connecting local lumbar yards specializing in small batch kiln drying to our network of producers. The result is a truely sus-tainable piece of furniture.
