Our tables are made from SFI (Sustainable Forestry Initiative) Certified Furniture Grade Douglas Fir which is sourced from the US Northwest. Tables are sealed so that you won’t have to worry about ring stains, water marks, etc. We like to create furniture that people can not only enjoy, but also USE every single day.
Each piece of lumber has a unique grain pattern, arrangement of knots and knot holes, and reacts differently while being stained, plus, given it has real people working on it, there are always traces of human influences. This is what makes buying hand-built items a pleasure.
Solid wood furniture has natural characteristics like all variety of knots/knot holes/hairline cracks/milling imperfections/etc. You will see natural character on the table top, legs, and apron. We cannot control for natural variations of the wood as we are using solid wood lumber and not mdf/plywood or any other engineered/manufactured lumber. Natural character is not considered a defect, but something to be celebrated.
