Custom Log Furniture

The Medicine Wolf Company was founded in 1999 and their craftsmen build native wood furniture in their own workshop.  They hand gather only the best dead, weathered trees from Colorado forest floors.  Each piece is then skip-peeled and hand sanded to highlight the wood’s interesting imperfections and natural beauty. 

The Medicine Wolf Company stocks a full line of aspen and blue pine or “beetle kill pine” furnishings.  They will also custom design and build to meet your specific needs.  Each bed, table, and chair are built using time-tested methods including mortise and tenon joinery and drawers are built using an age-old method of cedar slides and glides.

The Medicine Wolf Company stands behind the quality of their furniture, each piece comes with a full guarantee of strength and durability.  Much of their business comes from referrals by customers who are happy with their beautiful log furniture, just like me!

To learn and see more visit their website at, or visit their wonderful showroom at 2645 S. Santa Fe Drive in Denver.  Tell Jon I sent you and kick a tennis ball for his dog, “Lucky,” for me!  Thanks, Karen Ellis.

Help needed to clean up pile of slash!

As many of you know, Le Griess, Gregg Pearson, Duane Thompson and Ken Perdew have been cleaning along the Church Fork bed to allow water (when it has some) to flow to the pond without any stoppage. 

We now have a pile of slash.  A chipper will be at the pond this Saturday, July 7th,  at 10:00 AM and help is needed.  Please join us if you can!

Many of the chips will be used as needed around the pond.  Remainder will be available for members.

THANKS in advance!  For more information, call Ken Perdew, 303-838-7768.
