Tom Loeschner’s bond with wood runs in his blood. The day he was born his parents were collecting firewood in the Sierra Valley, and two and a half years ago when his son Hudson was born, Tom was also in the forest collecting wood.  While Tom burns wood to heat his 600-square-foot cabin in Floriston, he is better known for his bespoke furniture. Tom creates modern rustic furniture with local logs salvaged from Truckee/Tahoe’s urban forest. In the past Tom has worked as an arborist, a welder/fabricator, and a volunteer forestry consultant in West Africa. This diverse background has led to his small furniture business, Greywood Design.
