ABOUT REDWOOD: This Old Growth Redwood comes from the Massive "Coastal Redwood", these trees were first cut for logging back in the 1850's... They are now very protected. The Roots and Stumps from those first logging operations were left behind as unusable wood.Now, decades later the wood has been "salvaged" from the stumps and is available for some amazing furniture. The wood from these trees may date back 2,000 years (or more). Incredible when you think the tree this table is made from, may have been growing at the time Christ walked the earth!
