The town of Smyrna was incorporated in northern Maine on March 7, 1839. James Timoney pioneered to Smyrna in 1880 as an explorer and surveyor of lumber. His family settled into the Smyrna area and the 818 foot mountain named in their honor is a testament to the wonderful woods that kept them captivated in this picturesque setting. In the midst of conifer and vibrant leafy trees, Mount Timoney is a sight to behold in northeastern Maine. A plethora of beautiful stands of trees serve as the bedrock for the growing furniture collections and their marvelous hand-hewn bedroom, living room, and dining room sets.
All log furniture is subject to the natural process of "checking." Checking or cracking occurs when the wood releases moisture during the natural drying process and often occurs across the annual growth rings. Checking does not affect the structural performance or integrity of the wood. The degree of checking will vary from product to product and even from log to log. Small pinholes scattered throughout some logs create additional contrast and beauty.
These characteristics add to the uniqueness of our furniture and lend it a unique rustic appeal that is so very popular with rustic furniture owners.
