Our Protective Coatings

Protective coatings are the clear finishes that we apply to your furniture & woodwork to help keep your investment looking good for life! These are either applied on the raw wood directly or on top of a pigmented stain color.



Hand Rubbed Oil-Wax Finish - is derived from natural vegetable oils and waxes. It is microporous and helps resist stains and dirt by filling the pores of the wood grain. Because this finish saturates the wood it can easily be spot repaired/renewed by anyone with an easy rub-on application to refresh the finish. This finish is preferred when you want more character and the surface to have a broken-in feel; like your favourite baseball mitt. 

Sheen: Matte 
Feel: Most natural



Commercial Grade Finish - Our commercial grade finish is the most durable option and best suited to surfaces that are subject to heavy use. This thin, hard surface topcoat has the highest level liquid, abrasion and scratch resistance. This polyurethane based finish provides the most hard wearing finish while maintaining the natural tones and grain of the wood. 

Sheen: Matte 
Feel: Most durable without feeling thick


Solid Wood (Premium Materials)

We work with specialty suppliers to source high-quality, domestically-grown hard and soft woods. Each species has its own qualities and characteristics to make it great for fine furniture making. Our hand-rubbed finishes highlight the natural grain and depth bringing each piece to life.


Metals

Celebrating their own unique properties, our steel and metal alloys used in construction have a living finish. This allows the patina and character of each piece to be unique and develop with time.


Veneer/Laminate (Standard Grade Materials)


Fabric/Leathers

Upholstered goods are created primarily with premium polyester blends that are moisture and mold resistant. These synthetic blends also have extreme wearability and will not fade. Leather is sourced from one of USA’s only remaining specialty vegetable tanneries located in Pennsylvania. Each hide has its own unique characteristics and will only look better with time.
