0:13
on Roger branson Red Rooster song now the opportunity to work with trees is
0:19
always been
0:20
forefront me but until about eight years ago when I
0:24
bought this what lies male generally become real I saw lottery
0:29
wasted that's all I'm turned into far word are tough ground into just March
0:34
and Ed always disappoint me to see a really big extraneous
0:38
more or less to me go to waste that lumber need to be used
0:42
for the most part ninety percent what I males coming from the urban forest
0:48
I do a lot award for
0:51
our municipalities lights in Webster Groves
0:54
in Richmond Heights Saint Charles County so I have a lot of customers
0:59
universities
1:00
I I've mail from Washington University some really cool trees ANC storage stuff
1:05
it's amazing where that word count:
1:08
but they get the same thing for me again them
1:12
the best job I can new form Roger I
1:16
somewhat found each other based on being the oddball Sorbie like being
1:21
the ones that take it a little too seriously you know we weren't
1:25
weekend warriors go phone company furniture
1:29
is located in the city of saint louis were about 20 blocks
1:33
offer the Mississippi River and we've been in business now four years
1:36
up roger is I absolutely would sell it just like myself
1:42
and we're doing it because it was a way of life and when you meet someone like
1:46
that
1:46
you know there's a forty-five year age gap between us a kindred spirit kinda
1:50
thing
1:51
and it's a matter of what excites him
1:54
excites me and a lot of that is
1:57
just getting out there and seeing what we can find
2:01
Martin makes some really nice stuff
2:04
he's one of my customers and he wants
2:08
high and long chair Ian quartersawn white oak moss
2:11
and I just always exciting to watch inside mystery what's on the bar
2:16
and sometimes I get some really cool surprise well I was joke about
2:21
going out to the sawmill and have anything better than christmas because
2:25
you're able to open up these logs and you're able to look back in time
2:28
and that's a start the process it truly is
2:32
so the the birthing above the piece of furniture or the projects we have in the
2:36
future
2:36
he sees things in the logs and boards
2:40
sometimes I don't see it you know I had learned his
2:44
way i'm looking in its its
2:47
he he's very efficient way he knows what the end product
2:51
me I just know what the end product when it comes off the song
2:55
he sees it as a table or bench so
2:58
and he's very good the logs are out there
3:03
there's millions and millions and millions a log going to waste
3:06
every day its shame
3:09
Big Walnut Tree stuff like this
3:12
around it up
3:15
and its it's like taking that primary ever that nice
3:18
T bone steak and then ran into hamburger
3:22
hamburgers good I sure wouldn't want to ground all the steaks and hamburger and
3:27
that's what's happened to live our trees
3:28
it's all there nights you just cannot get out there and would monitors a way
3:35
to get it out
3:38
with Roger it's always very high quality
3:40
and he's got a womanizer hydraulic that allows me to bring one other guy
3:45
whose mid-thirties it can muscle around the timber and Roger can just cut all
3:49
day
3:50
back and forth its very consistent it's very clean
3:54
it's very efficient and it's a good process that we've just cultivated over
3:58
10 years
3:59
hang out one thing I like about mark enough right to work he horse these
4:03
boards and picking up Karen stack 'em
4:05
decker low demand Hilo it is over and so that the
4:09
front wheels are just barely on the ground but
4:12
he's a worker need if he's not going to be able to work the any shoulder
4:15
operation on
4:16
he brought somebody else it could so it's nice to have some might work to
4:21
work with no it won't work yes
4:23
that's really the
4:27
my favorite part of the job you know going out to the sawmill
4:30
rolling something on there that is covered in
4:33
worms and dirt and Hansen really making it
4:38
transform you know you something that had a life that is so
4:41
incredible beyond where I ever got in the process
4:45
you know those two hundred years in some cases a history before I ever got there
4:50
and now it's up to us to
4:53
take that two hundred years and either make it live on
4:56
or on our some way
4:59
what I find is the tree only to live so long
5:02
they do make a nice piece of furniture are nice wood turning or something
5:07
that peace piece that's made out one large tables maybe
5:12
around two hundred years
5:15
so the word out lives the tree by far
5:18
the majority people buying our furniture
5:21
are buying generational pieces furniture so it will mature with their families
5:26
just as their families expected
5:31
with regard to Roger its all about efficiency
5:34
and safety you know I don't worry about him doing things that are you put me in
5:38
jeopardy
5:39
and we're gonna have a successful milling day if any by asking what kinda
5:44
milling
5:44
castle four times and there's only one only one kind
5:48
atwood what else can I tell you I mean I'm
5:52
enjoy my would not turn on joyride
