Remember the way our early American pioneers built their houses using the available timber resources to fashion crude log homes by overlapping the corners and chinking the resulting gaps? As "technology" advanced, these crude dwelling started to morph into a more sophisticated log corner joinery called dovetailing. In dovetailing, the angles of the opposing pieces essential lock together as they are assembled. This is not easily done but the advantages of strength and style are worth the extra time taken. Still considered the pinnacle of present day log home construction, dovetailing is the inspiration for LodgeCraft's own Montana Renaissance collection.
Developed by LodgeCraft founder Tom Kincheloe over several years, Montana Renaissance has just the right balance of detailing and style to satisfy the rustic furniture aficionado. Made from alder, a highly renewable west coast hardwood, the finished product features a hand waxed finish that accents the intrinsic rustic features of the lumber and the dovetail joinery and other woodworking detail attributes. Standard line hardware is of antique pewter finish in keeping with the designs inspiration. We do not offer this product to any other retailer, brick and mortar or online. It can only be purchased from the LodgeCraft family of businesses.
