Lennox Office/ Furniture, Office
A truly unique project, this beautiful office set was milled and constructed from Belizean Sinker Mahogany, recovered from the rivers of Belize. Felled over 200 years ago, and already over 100 years old when they were cut, these trees were harvested by European settlers in Belize. Because these trees are found in dense rainforest, floating them down the river was the only method for getting them to the mill-sites The denser logs sank to the bottom of the river and were lost.
Recently, the Belizean government allowed some of these logs to be fished out of the river and reclaimed. It is from one of these very logs that every single piece of this set was made.
Starting off with mahogany log slices measuring almost 3' wide, 3" thick and 16' long, everything was milled down to the correct specifications. Modern hardware was incorporated to provide easy functionality of drawers and drawers. Chemcraft Verde urethane coating was applied to give it a brilliant lifelong finish.
Upon completion, it was hauled up to the mountains of North Carolina, where it is to be enjoyed by current and future generations.
