How We Build

IMG_0984.jpg

Raw lumber is a blank slate, that is where we start.

We think most furniture stores and manufacturers have it backwards, making you conform to their pre-built furniture from predetermined specifications. Unplugged Furniture conforms to your needs. You define the specifications and we build based on that. What you see here and in our showrooms are simply examples of what is possible. Come in and let us tailor our furniture to fit your life, your needs.

We are constantly refining designs and adding new styles. Our website is not intended to be a comprehensive collection of our products, but a first step into exploring the styles we offer.

Only the best construction methods.

All of our construction methods such as dovetail drawers, double drawer fronts, mortise and tenon joints, 1″ thick tops along with geared table slides, and metal drawer slides add beauty, life and performance to our furniture. We start with solid hard wood that has been dried down to approximately 6% humidity, where wood is at its most stable. We lock that humidity level in place with products designed to seal the grain against moisture. Our production methods are an extension of furniture making traditions that reach back to the roots of our country.

Finishing furniture requires electricity!

That's why we built a state of the art finishing facility with a massive air makeup and climate control system. This ensures perfect conditions for applying the industries most beautiful and resilient finish. Our top coat has the highest scratch resistance of any available. It repels everything from water to fingernail polish. Glasses wont leave a ring, spills clean right up, and cleaning can be done with a damp cloth. Dust with a cloth, clean with a light vinegar solution, that’s it. Our finish requires no polish, no maintenance, and no special care products. The stains we apply are formulated to accentuate wood grain as much as possible. They visually explode the flakes in Quartersawn Oak, and bring out all the fine grained beauty of Cherry. The top coat we use is a 2 part catalyzed varnish, similar to clear coat on a car. It is often used in high end kitchen cabinetry. Together our stains & top coat imbue a sence of depth & dimensionality to the wood that is truly remarkable, the results often times look alive.
