About Us

Rustic Forest is located in Northeast Ohio, operated by the creative duo of Dave Cvelbar and Kym Shippe. Each item we create is one of a kind. We source the finest and most unique wood specimens to create our products. We currently maintain a large selection of dried woods such as Walnut, Maple, Hickory, Cherry, Oak, Cedar along with reclaimed lumber and drift wood. Each step of the custom milling and kiln drying processes are performed on site to provide the most unique pieces of lumber possible.  Our hope is to harvest storm damaged and standing dead trees for my selection thus preserving our wood lots. Please take a moment to view our photo galleries and sale items.
