Premium Furniture-Grade Finish
Our shelves are defined by their beautiful wood and premium finish. Our Catalyzed Conversion Varnish (CCV) Finish is the established Fine Furniture Premium Finish. CCV must be applied by a skilled woodworker due to it requiring accurate preparation/mixing and application. CCV has a 40/60% solids that seals the wood and is maintenance-free. When cured, CCV's elasticity allows it to move with the wood eliminating cracking and flaking. CCV exposes the woods beautiful grain and color while leaving a satin smooth textured surface.
Our Trade Benefits
We have the wood.
Most makers purchase their wood from retail/wholesale sources - we must saw and dry our own. The difference is, our character-grade hardwood is not available commercially but rather available only through specialty wood mills and DIY. We select our own wood - wood with natural imperfections like knots and burls, all of which add character and beauty. Each log is different with its own unique color and character and each log is sawn with the slabs stacked and dried in the order they were sawn (slab collection).
We maintain a rotating inventory of hundreds of kiln-dried hardwood slabs ready for building our shelves and cutting boards. We are always searching for the next great log that's solid and full of beautiful color and wood character because for us, working with this amazing wood is a lifestyle, from purchasing logs to processing the wood - collecting the best wood slabs for their strength and beauty which will make amazing cutting boards and shelves.
