We create a soft, satin, sensuous surface for the hand and eye.
The surface of the wood is critical to the finish. We spend much of our time preparing the surface. Enough time so that sanding is the task for which we are least likely to express affection. But, when as we often hear, "so smooth," "silky," "satin," "sensuous," we feel better about it.
Oil and Varnish
We use two methods to finish our furniture depending on its use and the preference of our patrons. Both are time-consuming, taking 5 to 7 work days to produce. They are the very best for their purpose that we have found--by the study of finishes in the industry and their performance over time; by our direct experience and our patrons' comments since 1992; and by testing samples in the finishing room.
