Construction details of our pieces

Attention to small details is our point of differentiation. Our furniture uses quality construction such as dovetail joints for our drawer boxes, metal pegs for the adjustable shelves and European hinges to ensure that they will stand the test of time. All of our solid wood furniture, is made on the West Coast of Canada.

Here are some of the details which sets our furniture apart: dovetail jointed and full extension glides on a solid poplar adjustable drawer

Wood

 - Lines are built from Poplar, Maple or Rift Cut White Oak depending on design
 - No veneers or MDF are used
 - All drawer boxes, drawer fronts, top plates and vertical supports use Solid Wood

Finishing

 - First we apply a stain which we then hand wipe, to ensure even absorption
 - Next a sealant is applied to seal the pores and give a smooth, even surface for the next coat
 - This is followed by a clear lacquer for added durability.
