We use a wide variety of hardwoods. This variety helps us create patterns for the products we make. Each piece of wood has its own grain patterns and colors.  We do not use stains or dyes to achieve color variation. We finish our hardwood pieces with mineral oil and furniture wax.

Red Oak: North American hardwood found in central to north east United States. Pale reddish brown in color.

Cherry: North American hardwood found in central to north east United States. Rich brown red in color.

Walnut: Found in most temperate zones around the world. Chocolate in color.
