Furniture Basic Information
Tiger Maple, Birdseye Maple,American Black Cherry, and Mahogany are the woods of choice for
our furniture.We begin with rough lumber and every part of the finished heirloom is produced in our shop.
Our furniture is constructed entirely in solid wood using mortise and tenon pegged joints, locked and
mitered corners, and dovetails.
As important as time honored joinery techniques are, the successful completion
of each piece is ultimately dependent upon the finish. Furniture is available in a Hand Rubbed Natural Oil Finish, a Hand Rubbed Natural Lacquer Finish, a variety of hand painted decorations and faux finishes, and a Hand Rubbed Stained and Lacquered Finish.

Our finish is not a “processed” finish, but one that is subtly glowing with the warmth of a well patinated antique. The stained finishes enhance the natural beauty of the wood, they do not mask or hide the grain.
