All our finishes are sealed with a clear polyurethane, which protects against normal wear and tear. Stain colors depend on the type and age of wood. i.e. older wood has a naturally darker color. When deciding on your stain color, message us to talk through options.
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.
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.
Yes. The wood we use may look rough and have imperfections such as nail holes, knots, and dings, but it’s older and harder than anything you’d get from the hardware or big box stores. Because the trees were allowed to grow larger before they were harvested, the grain is tighter and therefore stronger.
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.
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 or let water stand on table for an extended period of time.
