In 2008 I began Sacred Resource. This was an attempt to find new revenue due to lagging sales in my custom closet business. My initial focus was on building meditation furniture and church furniture. Then I began making all kinds of furniture and housewares from reclaimed wood. Most of my items are made from locally harvested wood from the millions of dead pine trees killed by the mountain pine bark beetle. Many locals find it useful for only firewood, but I find the blue stain in the wood absolutely beautiful and love to work with it...a sacred resource.
