When you think of log furniture, the last thing that comes to mind is ordering the metal pieces that hold it all together. But here at Colorado Rock*N Logs we craft log furniture like no other…and we order from KingMetals.com.
And here at LogFurnitureHowTo.com you will learn how-to make your own modern-rustic log furniture with King Metals products…the same way we craft it here.
The Phone Call
Several months back I was completing a wrought iron railing for a new log home I’d been working on in Teller County, Colorado. It was then that I realized how easy my log furniture designs could be individually customized using the balusters and other assorted iron parts and pieces I order from KingMetals.com.
And it was also just about then that it occurred to me…King Metals offers much more than decorative metal! They also carry all of the dimensional steel needed to fabricate your own one-of-a-kind ‘Log Legs’ (as seen in the Colorado Rock*N Logs ‘Cabin Collection’), as well as a source of ornamental and decorative iron work for an endless list of projects.
So without hesitation I picked up my phone and made the call, introducing myself and sharing my vision.
You see, here at LogFurnitureHowTo.com, not only do we want to teach you how-to make your own one-of-a-kind log creations, we also intend to offer you ongoing welding and woodworking projects for folks of all skill levels and back-grounds, that you can then turn around and sell for yourself!
And as a ‘How-to Do-it-Yourself’ website, we’ll give you many options and an unlimited selection of projects, complete with ‘How-to’ video blueprints.
Once again, this is where our friends at KingMetals.com and their new Online catalog come in.
We’re very excited to be teaming up with LogFurnitureHowTo.com and Mitchell Dillman to give artisans and welders all over access to the fun and exciting world of decorative metal! Our Online catalog allows you to shop over 750 pages of in-stock product and enter a world where, with a little instruction and imagination from Mitchell, you can turn our products into one-of-a-kind heirlooms, or a business of your own.”
