Midwest Lumber 

From Forest to Furniture

Where does Brush Factory get their wood?

Rough sawn lumber is sourced locally from our favorite FSC certified zero-waste lumber mill where every bit is used in the process of turning a tree into a Brush Factory furniture.  At this facility sawdust is a fuel for the kilns used to dry lumber. Bark is ground and sold as mulch. Wood chips are used as raw material in paper production. Lumber cut-offs are bundled and sold as firewood and the best quarter sawn and plain sawn boards arrive at Brush Factory to the eager hands of our cabinetmakers.
