What are your standard finishes?
Which stain colors are standard? Can I choose one without the star?
Yes. The cost is $25 per piece for the stains that are not starred. Send us an email with the furniture you would like stained or painted a custom color and we will let you know if it can work. I.e. some wood is made from poplar so it won’t look good stained and should only be painted.
How many people will my table seat?
We typically say to allow 2′ for each chair at your table, however, it depends on the size of the chairs you plan to use. Keep in mind if you use a bench on one or both sides you will be able to fit more people. The diagram below can help get you started on deciding what length works best for you.
What size bench do I need for my table?
If your table has four legs, a bench needs to be one foot shorter than the table to slide underneath. i.e. a 7′ bench will slide under an 8′ table. If your table has a pedestal or trestle base, a bench can be the same length as the table.
What height of barstools do I need?
Will the finish on my furniture be rough?
No. Though we leave the natural imperfections in the wood, they are sanded smooth and coated with a water-based polyurethane to stand up to normal wear and tear.
How do I care for my new furniture?
Indoor furniture requires no special care. Just wipe it down with whatever cleaner you normally use I.e. warm damp rag with soap, clorox wipes, etc. You just want to be sure to never submerge it in water. Outdoor furniture may require occasional coats of polyurethane to protect it from the elements. If the piece starts to feel rough, give it a light sand and at least two coats of polyurethane.
