Very unusual collection of furniture made from pine roots. Great tour about the history and how items were made. Great lace to stop and see when in the area.

The unique woodworking a creative treasure. A must see, an experience you won't soon forget. Easy to find right off M 37. In Baldwin. Many people pass it by, not knowing what is really there. Better signage describing the attaction would bring in more people.
