In factories, machines manufacture and package and load the furniture and deliver it to the store. The person buying that chair or nightstand is often the first human to lay hands that wood. And those hands will be the ones that bring it to the landfill when it breaks or becomes outdated and unwanted.
We only cut deadwood and urban trees; trees that will rot, or be cut down and burned in slash piles or fireplaces or end up at the dump. The only machines we use are a pickup truck, chainsaw, and a portable sawmill. We know exactly where a bench or a table comes from. From tree, to board, to table, handcrafted.
