Natural and organic, the beauty of wood is revealed in the hands of an expert craftsperson. Never duplicated, the qualities of the selected hardwood boards that we use are unique. Our samples and finished product may differ somewhat while still maintaining the beautiful grain and color of the originating species.

Staining, bleaching, wire brushing, cerusing and lacquering are among the finishing techniques that we use to create color and texture. A final coat of a catalyzed clear lacquer is a cured coating that resists water, alcohol, most stains and moderate heat. It is always a good idea to use coasters and keep the surface dry.

We recommend a damp sponge to clean any dirt and frequent dusting but no direct application of furniture polish. Our finish has a bit of wax in it and it will polish beautifully.

Most importantly, avoid exposure to direct sunlight, heat and dampness.

Steel and brass are our available metal materials.

We can create custom finishes for your project, but most commonly we use blackened steel, silver patina steel and brass patina.

Our bespoke construction, ensures a high level of care and craftsmanship. Your furniture is built with utmost attention to detail , ensuring an investment in a custom made piece that will provide you many years of utility, enjoyment and admiration.
