busk and bask

Because you can't live in the woods, but you can live...with wood. 

 "Trees have a yearning to live again, perhaps to provide the beauty, strength and utility to serve man, even  to become an object of great artistic worth. Each tree, every part of each tree, has only one perfect use.  How to acquire logs and what to do with them calls for creative skill. There is need always to select and to  search, even to look underground where the most fantastic grains can often be found". George Nakashima

 

Teak - tectona grandis 

Considered by many to be the "King of all Woods"  Teak has the greatest capability of any wood to withstand the punishing effects of any outdoor environment. Our particular love affair with teak is inspired by the great Scandinavian designers of the mid-century.
