We use real, solid pine wood on all of our tables unless other specified. We do not use veneers, engineered, or plastic wood. It should be known that REAL wood has REAL beautiful and organic characteristics.
We hand-select every single board that is put into use on our tables. Each board has its own natural characteristics; including, but not limited to: SPLITS, KNOTS, WOOD GRAIN AND OTHER NATURAL MARKINGS. We embrace all of the wood’s natural characteristics and do not apologize for the wood’s natural flaws, instead we embrace it.
We prep all of our wood by using Kiln dried boards, tracking moisture content with a moisture reader and milling it ourselves before putting into use by planing, jointing and sanding the surface.
We put countless hours and limitless effort into properly prepping and jointing the wood we use, however wood is again a NATURAL material and is constantly moving with temperature and humidity. During changing seasons the wood can contract and expand, causing slight movement and may develop small cracks and cup or bow over time slightly. Again, we believe this only enhances the table’s rustic, and unique character.
We do not offer refunds or exchanges if any of these natural occurrences take place.
Lastly, every table is stained and sealed in 3-5 coats of protective polyurethane. This protects the wood from low heat and liquids. A warm plate or coffee cup will not leave any marks on the table, however you should never place anything directly from the stove or oven on the the bare wood surface. Water marks are basically nonexistent with properly sealed wood, however always wipe up spills as soon as possible to prevent any damage to the surface.
