1. Wood selection
We pay premium prices to obtain the highest quality lumber with the most consistent color and grain. In addition, we specify the length and width of the boards, so we can select sets of parts that match perfectly. Even on our widest dressers, the one-piece drawer fronts are cut from a single board, so the grain flows smoothly across the entire unit. Our tops must be glued from separate boards, so we work carefully to match the grain and color in each finished piece. None of the smaller pieces on our furniture is glued from cut-offs – our goal is to present the wood as it is sliced from the tree
Because we do not stain any of our furniture, the color of each piece must match the other pieces perfectly – the human eye is the ultimate arbiter of this process and the parts in our furniture can be rejected at any time by any craftsman, ensuring that the completed piece is of the highest quality.
