Each piece is bench-made by one craftsman not stamped out of a production line on shift. Just as you wait for your desk, table or chest, so do we! The process of building each piece by hand, and the quality we both desire requires extra time, as there exist few shortcuts. Generally, 5 to 7 months is the lead-time for the Jackson Desk and Table from date of deposit to availability date. The Robert E. Lee Camp Chest lead-time varies between 2 and 4 months from deposit to shipment.
The new “Logan Creek Heritage Collection” is generally more readily available from a small inventory available in 4-6 weeks. In any case you are encouraged to contact us at 276 944 3511 for a progress report.
You bet we are, and proud of it! We are not a factory, plant or warehouse hidden inside a mega-company. Our 2000+ square foot shop is nicely located on five acres of rural Washington County, Virginia, just behind our residence that is blessed with some of the finest spring water in the area. With the Logan Creek itself as our southern boundary, we have raised various children, pets, livestock and Cain here for nearly 30 years.
You are welcome to visit us and share a view of this beautiful area, just as we do daily, on the creek. We are in the shop mostly from 8 to 5 on Monday through Friday, and when behind in schedule, most likely late into the night!
A generous portion of the purchase price goes to the host museum where the original piece resides. The Stonewall Jackson Field Desk peacefully rests at the Virginia Military Institute Museum just across from Little Sorrel in Jackson Hall. The Robert E. Lee Camp Chest and J. E. B. Stuart Field Desk are housed in the Museum of the Confederacy in Richmond, Virginia. Both the Stonewall Jackson Death Bed and the Robert E. Lee Field Desk are proudly displayed by the National Park Service.
These pieces are indeed licensed and limited editions; the funds returned to each museum reflect both our commitment to historic preservation and your dedication to advancing proper operations of these outstanding institutions.
Our long-term vision at Logan Creek is to grow and prosper as well as assist in securing further interpretation and guardianship of our heritage for all to enjoy.
Since early 1974, we have been involved in some type of woodworking business: cabinet shop, construction company, retail hardwood lumber store, millwork reproduction and defense related plastic laminate. It has been our privilege since 1995 to be involved solely with significant historical furniture and its related skills.
If you require a quote on a special custom piece for home, office, or retreat, and do not mind a long back log, we would be pleased to supply quotes and delivery schedule: please contact us to discuss fees.
All pieces made by Logan Creek Designs require a 50% deposit before lumber is selected and any construction begun. We accept personal or company check, cash, money order and Visa/MasterCard to secure your order and establish a delivery date.
Upon completion of your furniture, the remaining 50% balance is due as well as projected delivery/shipping charge.
If you prefer a different payment method, we offer a “Collector Plan,” which allows you to pay 20% per month for five months. The sixth month’s payment will be the shipping/delivery charge and the furniture will be released.
In either case, work will begin only when 50% of total has been received by Logan Creek Designs. If you are not satisfied with your furniture, all money, (minus shipping/delivery charge) will be cheerfully refunded within 30 days of your written request.
We have desks, tables, chests, and other pieces here at Logan Creek Designs that you can schedule a visit to view. Contact us to schedule an appointment.
We offer customer testimonial and viewings in various locations across the United States; our furniture is spread across over 33 states in homes, offices, museums, and even in reenactors tents. Please call for the piece nearest you!
Since these pieces are oil finished, there is no surface film to scratch as in varnish, shellac or lacquer coatings. This rich satin glow is easily maintained by periodic wiping with a soft cotton cloth and some of the great smelling polish supplied with your order.
Your furniture is made to use; part of the joy of ownership is watching your heirloom mature with a rich natural patina that is not masked by heavy coatings of built-up finish materials.
Absolutely not and that’s the way it is supposed to be! As in people, wood has its own special grain, color, smell and feel. You are not buying a picture of wood as plastic laminate (Ugh!); your furniture is a one-of-a-kind copy of the original with a few minor and subtle alterations to insure the integrity of the original.
Good and reasonable question.
We try to build in lots of five; five desks, five tables, five chests. This allows use the luxury of a small run with a few multiple cuts that keeps the pieces affordable. But, if we were to do only one from start to finish without any interruptions, it would take about 100 hours for the Stonewall Jackson Field Desk, 25 hours for the Table, and 50 hours for the Robert E. Lee Camp Chest.
Yes, several of great historical significance belonging or used by Confederate generals. Watch this site for updates or contact us with your suggestions for prospective pieces.
