Our Cosmetic Standard
At Saw & Dust Woodworks, we take great pride in each and every piece of unique piece of furniture of solid wood furniture that we sell.
The furniture that is handcrafted and brushed finished by our team is built using solid wood that is 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.
What to Expect
Other characteristics of handcrafted, solid wood furniture include open knots, micro-imperfections and textural variations in the durable, hand brushed finishes, unique distress marks, joint lines, and distinctive nicks, small 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 means that the gaps between the boards of a traditional table top may get wider over time and need to be cleaned.
This natural movement enhances the one of a kind beauty of solid wood, handcrafted furniture. It does not affect structural integrity and is not considered defective. Your table is made out of organic materials and as such the temperature, moisture levels and treatment of your pieces will affect the natural expansion and contraction of the lumber. This is to be expected.
For customers that prefer to never have gaps between their table top boards, we recommend choosing our jointed top option, which eliminates cracks and spaces between the boards in the table tops.
Jointed tops expand and contract as a whole. You will still see the beautiful and natural open knots on jointed table tops.
We do not offer machine manufactured perfection - no two pieces are exactly alike since Saw & Dust furniture is crafted to your order specifications.
Due to the nature of this business, lumber costs and labor costs we cannot offer refunds, returns or exchanges so be sure to look your beautiful pieces over on delivery day to confirm you are satisfied.
We celebrate the true uniqueness of every piece of solid wood furniture we build.
