Ash wood is a hard, dense wood that is generally blond to light brown in color giving it a casual appearance.
Oak is a strong yet elastic wood with an attractive grain pattern. The age rings in the wood are far apart, giving it a unique appearance.
Corner blocks at the joints of wood frames increase sturdiness and durability. This method of joinery support offers the best strength and practicality.
Used to reinforce joints and provide support to the piece as a whole, dowel pins are inserted into a drilled hole and secured with glue. A good dowel joint employs a fluted dowel, which prevents air pockets from forming in the glue, thus keeping the wood from splitting.
As resilient as our wood pieces can be, they still require protection and care to safeguard their timeless beauty.
This technique brings more depth to grain patterns by using a small brush with a very dark stain to put random short dark lines or curves on the surface.

Antiqued technique creates a handsome, vintage, timeworn look on new furniture by applying a coat of stain and allowing it to dry completely. The stain is then removed from selected areas, usually edges and corners, using fine-grit sandpaper giving it a faded appearance.
Adding dimension, color, character and smoothness to the wood, a multi-step finishing process also preserves the wood's natural beauty. This wonderfully enhancing process is highly desirable, and found in the finest furniture.
