    Saw & Dust Woodworks is a garage-started, locally owned furniture company. Saw & Dust Woodworks-built-furniture is hand-made by a small team of local carpenters at our shop in Maryville, TN. We also offer a collection of Vintage Farmhouse Home Decor that are refurbished locally and/or hand-crafted by local artisans around Tennessee. We believe in supporting small business and offering local artists a chance to showcase & sell their work. Additionally, we offer local commercial & residential painting services as some of our carpenters are also experienced painters, finish carpenters and handymen. OUR COSMETIC STANDARD At Saw & Dust Woodworks, we take pride and care about each and every unique piece of furniture of solid wood furniture that we sell. The furniture that is handcrafted and brush-finished by our team is built using solid wood that can look distressed and has a reclaimed look. Given the handmade and hand-finished nature of the products we craft, variations and imperfections in the wood should be expected and celebrated! Just as every tree is unique, so too is every piece of furniture that is handcrafted and hand-finished just for you. Every piece of furniture will have a unique grain pattern and slight color variation as a result of the grain pattern. Other characteristics of handcrafted, solid wood furniture include open knots, (knots on top surfaces are filled by our craftsmen), visible brush strokes, micro-imperfections, and textural variations in the durable, hand-brushed finishes, unique distress marks, exposed screws, wood filler marks, rustic welds, joint lines, and distinctive nicks, splits, cracks, and other imperfections. We allow up to approx. 1" of variation across all measurements due to the custom nature of the handcrafted furniture we build. Those who do not appreciate variations and imperfections should not purchase handcrafted furniture. Solid wood may expand and contract due to changes in temperature and humidity. This natural movement enhances the one-of-a-kind beauty of solid hardwood and handcrafted furniture. It does not affect the structural integrity and is not considered defective. We do not offer machine-manufactured perfection - no two pieces are exactly alike since Saw & Dust Woodworks furniture is crafted to your order specifications. We celebrate the true uniqueness of every piece of solid wood furniture that is built and finished by hand in our woodshop.
    Figuring out what size table is right for your space can be tricky! Let us help! Tip 1: Seating Capacity Figuring out how many people you want to seat at your table is a great place to start. Chair widths and spacing preferences vary, but as a general rule: For Rectangular Tables: 6’ tables seat 6 loved ones 8’ tables seat 8 loved ones 10’ tables seat 10 loved ones 12’ tables seat 12 loved ones For Round Tables: 48” tables seat 4 loved ones 54” tables seat 4-5 loved ones 60” tables seat 5-6 loved ones 72" tables seat 6-8 loved ones For Square Tables: 46” tables seat 4 loved ones 55” tables seat 4-8 loved ones 60“ tables seat 8 loved ones 66” tables seat 8 loved ones Tip 2: Painter's Tape Use painter's tape to map out the table on the floor. This will help you visualize the new table in your distinct space. Then, simply take a tape measure and measure what you drew on the ground with painter’s tape. If you can maximize your space with a 7.75’ table, perfect. That’s what we’ll build. Tip 3: Spacing Rules If you know the room’s dimensions, but don’t have access to the space, here’s a spacing tip that will really help with the math. You typically want approximately 3 feet of clearance around all four sides your table. This will allow for a chair to be pushed back when someone stands up or for someone to be able to slide behind a chair that’s pulled up to the table. If you really need to maximize seating for a space, you might consider a bench along one or both sides instead of chairs. You can seat more people at a bench than with chairs when needed and you can tuck it under the table when not in use. Here is a visual seating chart that may help also:

    In our experience the Oil-based polyurethane is a perfect finish for solid wood furniture. It's hard, durable, and scratch resistant. Here are a few of our favorite things about oil-based polyurethane: You don't have to use coasters. You can leave a glass of sweet tea on the table in the summer and the condensation won't leave any water rings. Spills wipe up easily. Some finishes used on less durable tables would need to be stripped if you spilled something like sweet tea on them. The oil-based polyurethane doesn't need to be reapplied & won't dry out as much over time like some oil finishes. If something is too hot to hold, you will still want to put down a hot pad or coaster with practically any surface. You can also damage your top if you spill something with heavy chemicals in it, such as fingernail polish remover and alcohol based substances. You don't want to use harsh chemicals to clean your table, as this may wear down the finish over the years. We recommend a wet rag or a wet soapy rag for cleaning - but you can use any cleaning product intended for wood surfaces. Please note for a more rustic look we recommend Water-Based Matte Polyurethane. While still durable, it is a little more delicate and coasters are recommended. Every other finish color we have uses our oil-based polyurethane.
