C O L O R CHART  
Here is our current color chart of different finishes stains, colors. Click on a color swatch or stain to view furniture in that color.

Our furniture is made of solid wood. Wood has a natural character that makes each piece vary slightly. This adds to the character of each piece. In addition, our items are hand-finished by a craft person for a distressed, antiqued look . These finishes can vary in texture and coloration from the color presented on swatches available.

Please remember to mark down the color you like.

 

Process & Finish

Our furniture is made entirely of solid wood. There are no wood by-products, such as MDF, presswood or veneers to be found anywhere in our furniture; not even in the drawer bottoms or furniture backing.

The cabinet furniture, including television cupboards, step-back buffets & hutches is made of solid Canadian white pine which is kiln-dried to the acceptable furniture industry standard of 6 % to 8 % humidity. The wood thickness is either 3/4” thick of 4/4” (1 inch) thick depending on the piece and the parameters used in our designs. Most furniture backing is either 5/8” tongue-in-groove spruce or red pine. The cabinet pieces are also made full length ( to the floor) and then decorative bracket feet are applied.

The furniture is built mainly using splines and wood glue to hold door frames, facades and panels together. Drawer faces are made with a mortised joint and the drawer bottoms have a ‘floating’ panel mortised into the four sides of the drawer box. Great attention is paid so that our drawers glide almost as effortlessly on wooden runners as they would on metal drawer glides. On pieces where it applies, our adjustable shelves are made with breadboard ends to prevent twisting and the shelf height adjustments are done with pegs.

Finally, on all this finely built furniture, we apply a hand finish to mimic the look of a genuine antique. Our finishes are hand-painted and distressed by hand so that no two pieces are identical. Each piece is protected by at least two coats of polyurethane varnish and a coat of furniture wax which requires no maintenance. This finish protects against water marks and can be cleaned with a clean, damp cloth.

Custom Benjamin Moore: It is not always possible to carry enough colors to please everyone, so we can finish furniture in any Benjamin Moore color that is available to us. There is an up charge for buying and finishing in Benjamin Moore paint. Please note that we use flat finish paint and then put a polyurethane finish over the paint. Therefore the color could vary slightly from the samples provided by Benjamin Moore.
