American Made Cedar Log Accent Tables
Northern White Cedar is naturally resistant to decay and insects. Northern White Cedar is a renewable resource harvested mostly from Northern Michigan, and is the surplus from the log home industry. The logs are dried, monitored, and processed in our factory in Edmore, MI. Since Northern White Cedar produces natural preservatives against environmental enemies (decay, insects, and moisture), the furniture made from these logs can last 10-20 years.
Be aware that there are ‘look-alikes’ out there. Imported log furniture made from Chinese Fir may be cheaper, but they do not compare. Chinese Fir is not insect and rot resistant, and is also inferior in strength. Imported logs may harbor bugs inside the wood, and must be fumigated before entering the United States. These products give off odors that can contain formaldehyde and other toxic chemicals. Even then, it may not be enough to kill all of the bugs, which then allows them to enter our environment and infest our trees. Log furniture made from Chinese Fir will last 1 to 3 years.
