My primary wood source is local trees that were diseased, storm damaged, or in the path of construction. Most of this type of wood is best suited for artisan pieces, but beautiful wood can be found locally and I search hard for it. I also purchase exotic wood from wood dealers when I need stock to meet the requirements for a specific piece.

Under no circumstances do I use tree species listed as vulnerable or threatened by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, and I only purchase wood that is certified “Sustainably Harvested” by the Forest Stewardship Council.
