Artisanry & Cosmetic Standards
At Hawkins Woodshop we take great pride in each and every unique piece of solid wood furniture we design and make right here in the USA. Built to last for generations, our handcrafted and brush-finished furniture is sometimes distressed and may have a reclaimed look. Given the medium of real wood, variations and imperfections in the furniture should be expected and celebrated. Just as every tree is unique, so too is every piece of real wood furniture that is handcrafted, hand fitted, and hand finished just for you.
1. Authentically Human
Characteristics of real wood, hand crafted furniture may include:
- open knots, visible brush strokes, distress marks, wood filler marks
- joint lines, distinctive nicks, splits, cracks, and other imperfections.
2. Valuably Unique
Hawkins Woodshop furniture artisans do not mass produce furniture or designs. Each and every customer-order is a one-off, unique, work of art never to be replicated the same way again.
We celebrate the true uniqueness of every custom solid wood furniture order that is built and finished by American Hawkins Woodshop tradeswomen and men.
3. Ceaselessly Living
Solid wood may expand and contract due to changes in temperature and humidity. This means that seams & hairline cracks may develop over time. This natural movement enhances the one of a kind beauty of solid wood, handmade furniture.
4. Durably Constructed
For daily care, it’s recommended to clean solid wood furniture with water or cleaning products intended for wood surfaces. Avoid abrasive cleaners and harsh chemicals. If you’ve any questions, please don’t hesitate to email us.
