Custom Wood Art - Beyond Wood Floors
Brian Depp, founder and owner of Great Indoors Wood Floors, has a passion for beautiful woods. That passion and appreciation is what led him into the wood floor business. But all the while Great Indoors Wood Floors has been installing, repairing and refinishing wood floors, Brian has been busy in his home workshop making beautiful, creative things with wood (besides the wonderful wood inlay work he has done on wood floors.)
If you have ANY idea for a work of art made of wood that you would like for your home or office setting, contact Brian.

The story of this piece...
There was what was left of a giant "red beech" tree that looked like a 25 foot tall stump with a couple of small branches sticking out of the top when we bought the house. Those branches had leaves which amazed me. We knew we wanted to build a garage where it stood so I made the call and had it cut down. I love big old trees, and decided to try and use this wood to make some things for the house in the shop that would be built where it once stood for probably 150 years. When the portable saw mill started slicing the main section of the trunk, beautiful random patterns appeared. The tree had been struggling for a long time and the wood shows the beauty of it. This large end grain coffee or family room table is made from that tree, Red Beech wrapped over a 1 1/2” plywood core so it is very sturdy and not as heavy as it looks. Its made to support the weight of a couple people.
