Lo Gap Woodworks Inc introduces a new line of furniture, inspired by the Folk Art revival and handcrafted to be environmentally friendly.
Clinton, AR May 22, 2006 -- What makes the furniture Lo Gap Woodworks creates different from other manufactures on the market? After all, a table by any other name is just a table, right?
Inspired by the revival of the Folk Ark style of woodworking, Lo Gap Woodworks prides itself on producing high quality, unique, handcrafted furniture that doesnít quite fit into the box. With our furniture, you will find designs never seen in factory, mass produced items. Each piece is crafted by the way the wood curves or otherwise stands out. Due to the nature of the wood we harvest, no two pieces are ever exactly alike.
Our furniture is handcrafted in traditional methods. Utilizing only dowels and glues, along with tight fitting joints to assemble and secure each crafted piece. We use no metal screws or nails. Our finish is simple and safe; applying only non-toxic vegetable oil finishes. In cases where tables require extra protection from spills, they are coated with either a polyurethane or polycrylic to seal and guard the vibrancy of the grain.
Our wood is carefully harvested from our 15 acre Ozark mountain homestead. Our practice of silvaculture allows us to hand select each tree for the projects in mind, and with as little negative impact as possible to the surrounding environment.
All parts of the tree are used, from the boards we cut at our mill, to the sawdust and chips left from crafting each unique piece. By selective use of the limbs, branches and otherwise unusable parts, we create habitat for birds and other wild animals. The remainder is left to compost and replenish the forest.
Lo Gap Woodworks is dedicated to keeping a balance between our harvesting and the forestís eco-systems. Our goal is to achieve sustainability for the forest around us, while offering our customers distinctive furniture that can be found nowhere else for their healthy, green home, lodge or cabin.
