Beautiful Unique Rustic Wood Furniture
Mount laurel and rhododendron are members of the Heath family, linked to roses and azaleas, which thrive in the Appalachian Mountains of Western North Carolina. These trees are often found growing together in dense bushes. In the spring, rhododendrons develop with groups of pink, white and sometimes purple flowers. The mountain laurel flower grows together in a thick white grove. As these flowers loosen their grip, they fall to the jungle floor creating a beautiful expanse of white petals. Both trees are green with glossy dark green leaves. Rhododendron leaves are generally larger and more elongated than mountain laurels. Mount laurel and rhododendron are often the victims of cleaning and preparing the house.
These trees are generally burned as waste. Reusing these branches prevents them from wasting in bonfires and instead bringing their rural beauty to your home. The natural characteristic of these bent limbs is the perfect complement to rural dwellings. Skilled craftsmen can gather these branches through the intricate wooden workshop into a stunning setting of rural beauty. The branches of the tree greetings of mountains and rhododendrons are suitable for use as handles or decorative screens. When used in a handle, branches of diameter smaller than 1.5 inches are preferred. The top and bottom of the branch are easily ‘sandwiched’ between two pieces of wood for easy installation.
Unique Rustic Wood Furniture
Rough handles that are installed in place by skilled craftsmen look as if they have grown in place. The pre-assembled handle can be produced long for delivery to your location. Thick branches can serve as a post to support rough handles to enhance their beauty and complexity. Laurel or rhododendron branches larger than the diameter used in handrails are available for use on exterior structures, pergolas, gazebos, barrier fences and more. Rustic outdoor gazebos can have natural rods for walls and roofs, smaller branches for privacy screens and even have furniture made with branches. There are also many applications in the house.
A large open staircase in a mountain hut will be stunning with a unique rustic wooden handle. These handrails also look good on balconies and lofts in log cabins. Larger branches can be used in unchanged circumstances as interior accents and decorations only. Rustic mountain furniture, from chairs and tables to bedframes and bureaus, can be made from this versatile wood. The laurel and rhododendrons bring the natural beauty of the countryside into the home. Skilled craftsmen collect these versatile wooden rods and branches into many items including rough wooden handles, exterior buildings such as gazebo and casual furnishings that give the impression and feel of the jungle to your home.
