Finishing Services
To achieve a consistently smooth finish that provides the durability to protect your furniture for many years, we send our furniture to a professional finisher. As the furniture arrives it first gets sanded smooth using 150 grit paper. Once all the dust is removed, a fast dry wiping stain is sprayed on to ensure even coverage to all wood surfaces. The stain is allowed to penetrate the wood for a few minutes, before the excess is removed using a lint free cloth. After allowing the stain to dry, a two part sealer is applied and allowed to dry for 24 hours. The furniture surface is than sanded using a fine 280 grit sand paper. Once all dust particles are removed, a high build post catalyzed lacquer is applied to all wood surfaces. It takes approximately 48 hours for the complete finish to cure. Once cured, the finish is extremely durable against normal use.
We offer a wide selection of stain colours as well as distressing, antiquing and painting.  Furniture finished with more than one colour, painted finishes and some darker finishes have a premium cost and are not reflected in the prices on this website.  These costs should be confirmed at the time of ordering.  We also offer a colour matching service for a small premium, however cannot guarantee an exact match, as there are many factors that determine the finished colour. These factors may include variances in grain, brand and characteristics of stain or lacquer, and even a customer stain sample that has aged or faded. 

Delivery Services
We offer curb side delivery service within a limited area. The cost for this service is calculated at $1.50/km from our door to yours.  Only one delivery person is sent on each delivery, as a result your assistance may be required depending on the size of your order. As your purchase nears completion, we will call and set up a delivery date and time. We will make every effort to deliver your purchase at a time that fits your schedule. Contact us for more information on availability and to confirm delivery costs to your home.

Customer Pickup
If you are planning on picking up your order, please be sure that you have sufficient room for the items you have purchased. To prevent damage to your new purchase, please remember to bring packing materials such as blankets, tarps and rope, as our handmade furniture does not come boxed. Due to limited storage space, orders not picked up within 30 days after the customer has been notified, will be charged a storage fee.
