Solid hardwood is a renewable foundation for beautiful, durable furniture that will last for generations.
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.
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 won't 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.
