Quality we stand bymin max
It starts with board selection
Great furniture starts with great lumber. We take the time to sort and sift through whole bunks of hardwood to select the perfect board for every piece.
Highest Standard Craftsman Joinery
Joints are crucial to creating stability. In an industry that relies on laminated tops and cheap veneers, we raise the standard. We cut solid hardwood to size then glue them together to form slabs that will last a lifetime.
Built By Master Craftsmen
It's become common practice to have customers assemble their own product. But we are craftsmen. We build our pieces in shop, and once built they will not come back apart to fit inside the smallest cardboard box.
Sanded and sanded and sanded
Larger operations rely on industrial machines to handle their sanding. But we know there's a big difference between a piece of hardwood sanded by a machine and one sanded by craftsmen who care. We care and so we sand.
Stained by hand
When it comes to staining furniture, we use a slower, more intricate skill set of staining each piece by hand. There is an art to putting color to wood; it’s a skill we’ve harnessed and are proud to exhibit.
Durable and beautiful finish
After nine build stages and nine tedious inspections, our furniture finally reaches the finishing stage. Here, we apply three coats of a high-end, matte finish, water-based lacquer designed to stand the test of time.
A master craftsman at every step
Our craftsmen are trained with generations of knowledge. We take pride in attention to quality and detail so you can take pride in a custom piece that reflects your unique personality and style.Read More About Us
Frequently Asked Questions
Not sure about something? Maybe this can help.
What type of wood species do you use?
We exclusively use solid hardwoods for everything we make – and that’s really what you want in furniture. The big box stores are notorious for gluing a very thin (1/32-inch) piece of hardwood to a very cheap and lightweight type of plywood. Not the case here. If you order a table in Hickory it will be Hickory through and through, which means it is heavy, sturdy, and durable enough to take on the tests of time, kids, applesauce, dinner parties, and homework. The wood species we currently offer are Alder, White Oak, Maple, Cherry, Hickory, and Walnut. We carefully hand-select every board for each project, ensuring the final piece has perfect charm and personality. Due to the specific way we craft our furniture we do not accept customer supplied wood.
What type of finish do you use?
After a vigorous sanding process, we stain our furniture by hand with a cloth, then spray on several coats of a high-end, eco-friendly, water-based lacquer. Our topcoat finish is very durable and, unlike cheap oil-based products, ours doesn’t yellow over time. We use a satin base, so you won’t see a gloss in the light. You can clean the furniture with soap and water.
How do I clean my furniture and keep it protected?
With our water-based lacquer finish, all of our products are very low maintenance. You can clean with soap and water. No need for any wood "milks" or oils.
Do you really make furniture in a church?
Yeah, we really do. We started in a garage, then moved to a warehouse, then a bigger warehouse, and last fall we bought an old, abandoned church in Midtown. We renovated the whole thing beginning November of 2015 through September of 2016, and we are now fully operational inside the Westminster Congregational Church, which was built in 1904, and located at 3600 Walnut Street, Kansas City, MO 64111. You can learn more about how that came to be on the Our Story Page.
How long will it take to get my piece of furniture?
Everything we make is from scratch so there is a bit of wait time. From the day you book an order to the day it’s ready for delivery/pickup, you are looking at about 12 weeks. And, of course, you are always welcome to check in with us on the status and timing of your order. And if you’re in a big hurry make sure to ask about our Rush Completion Fee.
