Here are the most asked questions and our best answers!
Frequently asked questions
What size table will I need to seat __ people?
The size of your table is often determined by how many people you wish to seat. We recommend allowing 22"-24" of lineal table edge per person. To simplify this:
What types of woods do you use?
We specialize in reclaimed woods for our farm table tops. These boards are salvaged from 18th & 19th century buildings throughout the state of Maine. Sadly most of these buildings are being torn down due to neglect and the cost to maintain.
What is the difference between Reclaimed wood and "Rustic" Pine tops?
Our "Rustic" Pine table tops are made from newly sawn and locally sourced Eastern White or Red Pine. We leave the saw marks in, which gives the boards a nice relaxed, rustic feel not found with milled boards which are completely smooth.
What types of finishes do you use?
We use a professional grade pre-catalyzed lacquer in a dull-low luster sheen on all of our tables. We have been at this for a long time, and have tried just about everything under the sun. We have found this to be the most protective, durable and beautiful finish for our furniture.
What is your lead time for a custom table?
It is best to call us for the existing schedule which changes as new orders come in.
Do you deliver nationwide?
YES! We use two private, moving services who specialize in furniture deliveries for custom builders. One delivers on the east coast, the other mid-West to California. They are what is often refered to as white glove movers. Each piece is carefully blanket wraped and set up in your home. They have a good working knowledge of our furniture, and take great care with each piece.
What types of payment do you accept?
We accept personal checks, credit cards (Mastercard & Visa) and of course cash.
Is your furniture made with solid woods?
The answer to this is a resounding YES! All of our handmade farm tables are made with solid woods. We do not use vanered plywoods, or other modern "woods" such as partical board, etc. From the reclaimed wood tops or Rustic Pine tops to the bases, trestle, or four legs, top to bottom is reall 100% quality solid real wood.
