The Glacier Country Collection features a truly remarkable finish reminiscent of the Grand Lodges of the Rockies circa 1900. First craftsmen remove the outer bark using an old-fashioned draw knife while simultaneously leaving the inner cambium layer for increased texture and contrast. After assembly, each piece is completed in an eight-step professional finish process that applies premium grade stain and clear lacquer for a stunning, low maintenance finish. The result are dark, rich hues and warm tones to provide an extraordinary appearance.
Our logs are harvested in the Kootenai National Forest with Lodge Pole Pine chosen due to its superior strength and because it is generally straighter. Montana Woodworks prohibits the use of heavy equipment in the harvest of our logs as machinery would damage the surface texture of our timber. After harvesting the standing dead timber, the logs are stored until sufficiently dry for use in the building of our furniture. We use the mortise and tenon style joint for maximum strength. For the tenon, or the peg, we use a machine called a Log Woofer which works much like a very large pencil sharpener leaving a tapered end. We carefully sand each piece of furniture before, during, and after the assembly process to smooth the furniture s surface ensures the highest quality product possible. During the assembly process, we apply a powerful adhesive into the mortise, or the hole, before joining the two pieces. After assembly, the items are again sanded and carefully re-inspected.

Customer reviewsbeautiful furniture
my husband and i love the bed, it was exactly what we were looking for Great workmanship. Our only complaint is that the frame doesn t attach to the drawers. that would make a more solid sturdy frame. if the bed isn t pushed up fully against the wall it is a little wobbly. We have a window partly behind our bed and the pane wouldn t allow it to be flush which is a problem for the bed stability. But once we reorganized the other room furniture we were able to move the bed to be fully against the wall and pushed the drawers up against the headboard. Now the bed is super solid. all in all we love it.
