Woods & Finishes
We like clear naturally finished woods, particularly maple, oak, alder, cherry and bamboo. But, we are open to stain preferences you may have and painted pieces as well. We can “match” any stain or color you like or at least come remarkably close. Paint-grade beds feature of mix of closed-grained hardwoods sometimes from existing inventory but primarily poplar, birch and maple. If you want your bed stained tell us and we will make a sample for your approval. Distressed and crackle finishes are also possible.
Finally, all of our products are finished with the industry standard in finishes, a highly durable conversion varnish, the finish that is widely for kitchens and vanities. It's the perfect for thing for furniture that gets handled a lot, such as the moving parts of a wall bed. And, it's easily pigmented to any color, yet is low in VOCs -- those nasty Volatile Organic Compounds -- that some other finishes release. We like it too for its satin sheen, an almost dull rubbed effect.
