ORIGIN

Planted in 1869, the Black Walnut once stood adjacent to an old homestead house on a rural farm in Southern Idaho.

Scott first laid eyes on this 147-year-old tree via a Polaroid photo. With it was a handwritten note from the homesteader’s great, great grandson. It explained the tree was pulling apart the stone and mortar of the hand-dug foundation. To save both tree and home, Scott harvested the Black Walnut as three generations of American pioneers of looked on.

CHARACTER

Ash is very dense wood, highly figured and blonde in color. This tree, in particular, was in the perfect condition and revealed an adventurous life: bugs and worms had carved their tracks into the edges, year rings told of drought and wet seasons. A wise and storied tree we’re honored to have stewarded into its second life.

CRAFT

Hand-planed and polished, this semi-circular slab shaped by the flow of its grain captures the rare detail of a century and a half on the prairie.

Planted around 1870, the Green Ash tree stood in an alfalfa field, a few hundred yards from Snake River Canyon in Southern Idaho.

In the summer of 2014, while driving through the farmland, Scott was stunned by the beauty of this ancient Ash. Knowing the adjacent road was about to be widened, he contacted a local farmer, and then the land’s owner in Spain who granted him permission to harvest the majestic tree planted by settlers nearly 150 years ago.
