While we take advantage of the efficiencies of modern machines and technologies, nothing brings wood to life like the touch of the artisan’s hand.
We use time-proven methods of joinery like dovetail and mortise and tenons. These are the joints that have held heirloom furniture together for hundreds of years.
After we hand-plane every surface we use scrapers and chisels to recreate years of natural aging and distressing.
Our master finishers continue the aging process, by applying layers of glaze and polish to bring out the natural beauty of the wood grain and recreate decades of accumulated patina.
Even when distressing and aging is not the desired look, we carefully select the lumber for its grain patterns and then use the finishing process to bring out the natural beauty of the wood.
