Wood Selection

 

Materials and Finishes

Curly Maple, Cherry, Bubinga, and Walnut are the predominant woods we use in our work. Each is a durable hardwood with rich, beautiful color and grain.  It’s important to note the colors you see are NOT stains.  They are the natural colors of the wood itself. Slight variations in the tones and grain patterns are common.  Our standard finishes are either a natural, hand rubbed oil finish or non-yellowing, acrylic lacquer, which is waterproof, alcohol proof, resistant to food acids, heat resistant, and extremely durable.
