OUR MATERIALS

SUSTAINABLY SOURCED IN THE MIDWEST

Each piece is inspected, hand picked and carefully placed according to grain and color

AMERICAN BLACK WALNUT

It has light to dark chocolate-brown tones, and provides strength, hardness and durability without excessive weight. It’s generally a straight-grained wood, with the occasional swirl or curly grain. Unlike most woods that darken with age/UV exposure, walnut will eventually turn a lighter shade. Please be mindful of this when purchasing pieces that will receive direct sunlight.

MAPLE

We use a hard, white maple that has a light, more consistent tone than some varieties. It’s similar to Oak regarding sturdiness, shock resistance and weight. With its diffused, smaller pores, it has a smooth even tone.

CHERRY

Cherry is a strong, fine-grained hardwood, displaying pink undertones that may occasionally contain small brown pith flecks. Its rich coloring will eventually darken with UV exposure, giving it a beautiful, silky, dark patina.

FINISH

Conversion Varnish


We apply the urethane on a timed and heated conveyor belt. Durable, water resistant and matte, this finish option is low maintenance and versatile. Repair requires professional sanding and refinishing. The best cleaning method is dry dusting or a solution of mild soap and warm water for deeper cleaning. Avoid polishes or wood cleaners that contain wax, since they dry out the wood. As with any finish, avoid setting hot pans or pizza boxes directly on the surface. Other finish options are available upon request.
