From Our Forests
All of our wood comes from lands that we personally manage for wildlife habitat. We selectively harvest trees to promote stand health and wildlife management. We also utilize trees that have been downed due to storms, tornadoes, etc. We plant trees to put back what we take. Gum Creek is owned and operated by two foresters that have extensive training in uneven aged forest management, and a passion to protect our forest resources.
To Our Shop
Our botcher block boards are made from kiln dried lumber (from our own kilns) and produced in our shop. The shop, located in Ben Wheeler Texas, is on 5 acres of land and set up for maximum efficiency. We hand make every board individually to ensure the highest quality. Our edge-grain and end-grain boards are produced using skilled labor, food grade safe materials, and organic finishing. From beginning to end our goal is to make every board exceptional.
