In addition to the woods and finishes listed below, we have created many beautiful pieces using the following wood, walnut, mahogany, birch, white oak and lacewood. If you have a specific wood in mind, please ask us about the appropriateness for your furniture. We will even work in wood that you own as along as it’s kiln dried to furniture grade specifications.
Once used only in high furniture styles of the 18th and 19th centuries, cherry is equally elegant for a Windham Farm Table or Cannonball Bed. When finished only with natural tung oil, the years ripen the cherry wood to an even richer cherry color.
Maple is a light-colored, close-grained, and exceedingly hard and strong wood. The maple tree—along with its unparalleled syrup—is a staple of Vermont and a staple in many of our pieces.
Striations that run perpendicular to the grain make tiger maple as unique and strident as its namesake. Used extensively during the 18th and 19th centuries, tiger maple is now—in both its hard and soft forms—as rare as the tiger itself and commands a premium price.
Our standard finishes include natural tung oil, antique tiger maple, tiger maple, and cherry. Our finisher will also work with you to develop a custom finish or match an existing finish in your home.
More stylized, the paint finishes include black, blue, and green over barn-red, a style straight from Colonial times. The over color is rubbed at what would be high-traffic areas on legs and surfaces, letting the barn-red beneath peek through.
Milk paint, heavy distressing, and crackle finishes are also available.
