Old-Growth Again - Forever Redwood Furniture
Yes, some of this outdoor furniture is made from old growth wood – But wait! Don't go yet! There's a twist. They use logs that were left on the ground from when old growth forests were logged in the 1950s. They even harvest them with two horses named Ike and Sparky instead of with heavy machinery that would damage the soil. Their furniture seems quite heavy & robust. It should last almost forever, with thick boards that are bolted together and metal plates underneath the legs for "extra strength and protection". You can even ask them to make a customized piece if what they have doesn't fit your needs (including kid-sized versions). They state that their "true mission" is forest restoration; They make the furniture to fund the restoration of a 580-acre forest in Annapolis, CA, so if you buy from them you are helping a good cause.
