Do you really craft each custom furniture order by hand?

Yes.  Each built-to-order purchase is handmade in the USA by professional American tradesmen and women.  We build to your specs, size, and style.

For example, you may choose a seamless tabletop (no crumb gaps) or go with a planked style look!  Just let us know in the group text chat created by Colby after your purchase to ensure we meet all your unique needs.

Our Process:

  • Rough-hewn top planks are hand-selected, planed, and smoothed with 80, 120, and 220 grit sandpaper to a smooth, natural texture.
  • Our lumber is kiln dried, pre-conditioned by hand, and the color(s) of your choice is carefully and meticulously applied by hand.
  • Three layers of water-and-scratch-resistant clear-coat is then hand-applied; you may choose the sheen in your group text chat with your carpenter:  satin, semi-gloss, and gloss finishes are available.
  • For more details, please see our Artisanry and Cosmetic Standards.

Returns & Cancellations

Given its hand made and hand-finished nature, variations and imperfections in solid, real-wood furniture are to be expected and celebrated. Each item is an original and no two pieces are exactly alike. 

By their nature, wood planks may be somewhat uneven and may develop small cracks and cup or bow over time due to changes in temperature or humidity. We believe this only enhances the furniture’s rustic, unique character. For more details, please see our Artisanry and Cosmetic Standards.

Once a purchase is made there are no cancellations or refunds on built-to-order furniture.  For details please see our cancellation, return, and refund policy here.  Don’t fret, there are lots of reasons we have so many 5 star reviews from customers, see here, but perhaps the biggest reasons are we LOVE our customers, WORK until they are completely satisfied, & offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee at time of delivery or pick-up.

Thank you for your support and business!
