Using real materials is better. We never use fiberboard (MDF/ particleboard) or toxic chemicals in our products. Rather, we employ solid & multi-laminated wood so that our wares are repairable, last longer and look better with age and day to day use.
Handpicked Wood Selections
Wood used in our products are hand selected by durability, availability and appearance. We use all sorts of local and imported wood ranging from domestic species like Walnut, Maple, Hemlock and Ash as well as exotic hardwoods like Padauk, African Mahogany and Purpleheart. By request, we can apply choice stains from our exclusive OSMO inventory to establish surface protection and optimal tint appearance.
