Solid Wood Characteristics
Congratulations on purchasing this uniquely hand-crafted & hand-finished furniture. Each tree is unique. Knots, cracks, grain variations and color differences are inherent characteristics and enhance the natural beauty of each piece. Changes in humidity due to air conditioning or heaters, exposure to direct sunlight, surface moisture and seasonal climate variations can cause solid wood to expand and contract over time. You can expect to find slight shrinkage, seasonal cracks or splits from time to time. These are normal occurrences that will not affect structural integrity of the piece. Our time-honored construction techniques such as mortise and tenon joinery, dovetailed drawers & floating tops and panels ensure this product’s durability by allowing for the natural expansion and contraction of solid wood. Variations in rustic finishes, including worn edges, uneven planks, dents and nicks are considered a natural distressed characteristic of this furniture, and are not considered defects but rather are desired as character traits.
Care For Lacquer Finish
Clean with a damp cloth and towel dry immediately after. From time to time applying a light coat of lemon oil can help preserve the luster and protect the wood. Do not use care products that contain ammonia or silicone, as they will cut through the lacquer over time and damage the finish. With proper care, this hardwood furniture should last for generations.
