At Roxie Woodworks all of our materials are locally sourced southern hardwoods. While primarily from Mississippi, some trees are obtained from Louisiana, Tennessee, and Alabama. All of the logs we use are removed only for reasons of health or marginalized stability near homes or businesses. Roxie Woodworks discourages the unnecessary removal of healthy trees.
Commonly used tree species include: walnut, cherry, maple, sycamore, cypress, osage orange, oak, elm, and heart pine.
Once obtained, the logs are milled into slabs and then carefully stacked and allowed to air dry for a minimum of two years. The slabs are dried to a moisture content of 7-12% before they're ready to be shaped into beautiful, handcrafted furniture.
Much time and attention to detail are required to build Roxie Woodworks pieces and the finished product reflects those ideals.
