some questions answered...
how do i order?
email julie at email@example.com or call her at 310.738.5549
can i have seat numbers in my piece?
do you have items in stock?
yes... our in-stock inventory is always changing. if you are in hurry, call julie @310-738-5549 and we will let you know what we have.
do you sell just the wood?
is the wood treated?
our wood comes to us in a natural state. we treat it with boracare, a low-toxicity wood treatment. termites do not care for cedar, but as with all wood products, pests can be attracted. to be frank, insects are a huge problem for the new and reclaimed furniture industries. if you would like us to heat treat your piece, let us know. heat treating is a very effective insect control measure.
is the wood sealed?
most of our products are sealed with polyurethane.
how do i care for my piece of furniture?
dry dusting is awesome! a slightly damp rag works well. please don't use any chemicals on the wood or the steel. if you harm the wood on accident with something harsh, we can fix it for you. ;)
what is your return policy?
in general, we do not accept returns. there are no returns on custom items. our pieces are sold as-is. that being said, i'm a softy and want you to be happy with your purchase. let me know if there is a problem! after two years in business, we have only had two "problems."
