Where are you located?
We are located in Chesterfield NJ. We are available for in person consultations by appointment only. Please contact us prior to visiting the shop.
How can I pay for items on your page?
Once we’ve discussed your order, I’ll send you an invoice through email for a deposit. The remaining balance is due on the day your order is delivered. I accept cash, check and credit cards.
What paint options do you offer for Farmhouse tables and benches with painted bases?
Typically, I use only high quality paints and primers from Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams, and General Finishes. When selecting paint color, you are welcome to be as general or specific as you want to be. If you are trying to match other colors in your home, I am willing to use any brand and color that you specify. Alternatively, you can simply specify, white, grey, or black etc, and leave the rest up to me.
What stain options do you offer?
I prefer to use stains from Minwax and General Finishes. The three most popular colors are Minwax’s Dark Walnut, Early American and Ebony. If you have a question about a color featured on the site please contact me. If you’d like to specify a stain from another manufacturer, I’ll be happy to use it.
Where do you deliver to?
We deliver to All of New Jersey, All of Delaware, Eastern Pennsylvania, Maryland, Brooklyn, NYC and NYC Suburbs, Washington DC, and Washington DC Suburbs, and more.
How Rustic is a standard Farmhouse table?
My standard tables are not excessively rustic. Although, your table will have knots, it will not have holes or other natural defects unless you request that your table have these features. I aim to produce a product made from natural materials that is smooth and refined. If you’d like your table to be particularly rustic, consider ordering a distressed table.
Can my Farmhouse Table be distressed?
Yes. There are no additional charges for a distressed table or bench. You are welcome to request that your table be either lightly or heavily distressed.
What Kind of Warranty do you offer?
Workmanship and materials have a lifetime guarantee. Should your item, break crack or split, it will be replaced. “Touch ups” are free, complete refinishing is not. Serious owner inflicted damages are not covered. However, I’ll be happy to repair serious owner inflicted damages for minimal fees. In general, you can expect that I will work with you, not against you.
Can your furniture be used outside?
No. My furniture is intended for inside use only. You might have noticed that some of the pictures are taken outside. That is simply an attempt to get pictures of the items with plenty of natural light.
What do you charge for delivery?
Delivery Estimates are based on tolls and mileage. We strive to keep delivery costs, low, and competitive. Ask to find out. They’re usually quite reasonable.
What Type of Wood do you use?
We use Douglas Fir for for our table tops, and bench tops. We can use different wood upon request. It typically raises costs. We use various species of wood for our cabinets. The short answer is that it depends on the project.
Do you ever use species other than Douglas Fir?
I’m certainly willing to build your table from any wood species that you’d like. If you’d like your table to be built from a different type of wood, I’ll be happy to provide you with an estimate. Common domestic hardwoods such as oak, maple, and walnut usually increase price by 50% to 75%.
