Frequently Asked Questions
Delivery & Shipping
Our furniture will be FOB from Fergus Falls, MN. It will be blanket wrapped and shipped with an experienced professional furniture mover.
This applies to period reproductions and custom furniture.
What Are Your Favorite Woods?
If I am building a period reproduction- Black Walnut, American Cherry, Tiger Maple.
Early American furniture may put Eastern White Pine to good use. Reclaimed woods may lend themselves to early American pieces or custom work.
Hard to beat quarter sawn White Oak for Arts and Crafts furniture.
I Notice You Offer Smaller Accent Pieces
Yes, many times a person loves period furniture but the budget will not accommodate a Chippendale desk. A porringer table may be realistic. Both look great.
A shaker pegboard looks great, is extremely practical and budget friendly.
Are All Your Finishes Hand Applied?
Care For Your Custom Furniture
Does Solid Wood, Wide Boards Present Problems?
No, with good wood, properly dried, paired with quality construction I have not had problems. At least not in 32 years.

“When we build… let it not be for present delights nor for a present use alone, let it be such work as our descendants will thank us for, and let us think… when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that man will see as they look upon the labor, and the wrought substance of them, See! This our fathers did for us!”John Ruskin
