122 Beautiful Hardwood Choices on Every Furniture Piece
Wood Finish Choices: We also provide more information on how to choose the right wood finish.
Care & Maintenance: For details on care of your new furniture, please see our care and maintenance page.
Leather & Fabric: For upholstered furniture, we offer a page filled with fabric and leather choices.
Our furniture is created from winter-cut trees, raised and harvested in the upper midwest. The hardwood logs are seasoned for twelve to sixteen months to dry them thoroughly, bringing the moisture content down to 8-10%.
The seasoned hardwood logs are cut into lumber in the dimensions needed for the particular piece, air dried for an additional six months, and then placed into a kiln with circulating air. This brings the moisture content down to around 6%.
After the lumber is dried, it is sorted through for select pieces of solid wood. Pieces with natural abrasions or flaws are used on the bottom or back of a piece (on a less visible portion). The best hardwood is saved for the tabletop, or the front of the dresser -- the sides that are in full view.
Custom Hardwood Samples
Mixed Wood Designs: For mixed hardwood and mixed stain designs, simply request our standard wood samples. The same stains are used on our mixed wood designs.
Distressed Wood Finish: Please see our section on distressed wood finish for details. Distressed samples are quite large, and are individually customized. Distressed wood finish adds 15% to the cost of our furniture.
Exotic Wood Species: We can create a furniture piece from an exotic hardwood species. The ones we have worked with most commonly are Mahogany, Birds Eye Maple (a special cut of hard maple) and Knotty Oak. We can provide a quote in one of these exotic species, but please be aware that they are not always available in large quantities. Birds Eye Maple, in particular, is generally used as an accent.
To Order Custom Wood Samples: Please call us at 888-900-5235 to order custom wood samples. We will ask for a $30 deposit that can be applied towards your order.
