Solid Wood Unfinished Furniture Kits
Just like most of our finished items, you can order many of our unfinished kits by the inch. This way you get a custom made piece to fit your space at a substantial discount, and it only takes a little time and elbow grease on your part.
And you can get everything you need to finish your item [sandpaper, glue, and finish material] with one trip to your local home goods or hardware store.
Our unfinished furniture kits are handcrafted and fully assembled for an accurate fit in our shop. We then unassemble it, box it, and ship it to your door or prepare it for you to pick up.
We do not use nails. When we do use mechanical fasteners we only use screws which we provide. If they are not hidden when the item is fully assembled we also provide matching wooden plugs to cover the screws and the holes. After assembly, put a little glue on the plug, gently tap it into the hole and sand it flush when the glue has dried.
Our unfinished furniture kits are surface sanded to a medium grit finish using 120-150 grit sandpaper. You may only need to finish sand using 180-220 sandpaper. In many instances you will only need to sand and round off the edges.
This is how we finish our furniture - YOU CAN TOO!
Our cherry items are finished with a hand rubbed natural oil finish. We use Watco Natural Danish Oil applied with 600 grit wet/dry sandpaper. We then protect it by up to six coats of MinWax Wipe-on satin polyurethane.
Our maple pieces are left natural, no oil or stain. We then protect it by up to six coats of MinWax Wipe-on satin polyurethane.
Our painted furniture is all built from poplar and painted with up to 3 coats of Milk Paint in any one of 56 colors. They are also then protected by up to six coats of MinWax Wipe-on satin polyurethane.
