Care Of Your Product
Can I clean my item?
Please remember that we use ‘reclaimed’ materials alongside some new materials, this does not diminish the quality or detract from the finish, it simply means that the wood has had a previous life and is now being repurposed into another beautiful product. Where possible we research the wood and share their history. Some pieces have similarities but by the nature of it being reclaimed they do have special marks and traits. The reclaimed pieces are truly one of a kind.
There may be dents and chips here and there or maybe some interesting grain patterns and knots or we may have left some of the original fixings in there, these are not faults or imperfections but testament to the wood that has been previously had a life! We will point out and accentuate these unique features as part of the beauty of the piece.
Our products and creations are finished to the highest standards and we are proud of our reputation, but please look after the products as wood is a natural material and will expand and contract with the seasons.
If you have a commissioned piece we will work with you every step of the way to ensure you look after the product.
Looking after wood
Avoid Heat Sources
Wood will expand and contract with heat, usually along the grain which brings along its own challenges, we do build to accommodate this expansion and contraction but over time it stresses the piece and loosens joints so please avoid them if possible. We are glad to discuss your siting of the piece with you.
Protecting Your Table
We always finish our creations to a high standard, using various finishes ranging from natural oils, wax to poly finishes which all have their own unique care instructions, the main ones across all finishes is to wipe up any spills as quickly as possible, if you do cause damage please contact us and we will be happy to restore the piece.
Cleaning Your Furniture is simple
Damp soft cloth – no bleach or abrasive cleaners and natural wax to finish
