Cross Dressers Get Their Start

Watching logs turn into dressers is cool!  With our latest product we were fortunate to watch the entire “making” process from forest to showroom.  The Cross Dressers are made using Columbia Forest Products formaldehyde free PureBond™.  This material gets it’s start at one of Columbia’s facilities located in Klamath Falls, Oregon.  Our friends at Columbia let us into the factory so we could document the beginnings of the Cross Dresser collection. Over the next week we will share a few pictures that will show where the raw material for our collection begins.

Logs are stacked and ready for for a dip in the river.

These logs are just about to be placed in the river for a good soak.

One by one each log is plucked from river and placed on a lift that moves the logs into position for cutting.  This begins their transformation into veneers that will be used to make plywood panels.

After each log is cut to size they are ready for peeling.  This video shows the logs being peeled.  We love this part!
