      We have a wide variety of stains and finishes. You can read more about our finishes here: Choosing the Right Stain.

    10. How durable are the tables?

      Solid hardwood offers more durability than some of the softer, faster growing woods like pine. However, no matter how dense the wood type, it can still dent or scratch. We recommend using care to extend the beauty and life of the furniture.

    11. Do you have table sets?

      Because we have so many different products, we do not have pre-designed table sets. Our knowledgeable sales team would be happy to help make suggestions for you! You can also search our site by style. For example, you can search by mission style table and then for mission chairs. For the most part these would work to pair together.

Extensions:

    1. Which tables can self store the extensions?

      You can search for all the tables that have self-storing extensions, by using the “Self-Storage” filter on our website or click here: Self Storing Tables.

    2. How do self storing leaves work?

      The table opens and then the leaves are inserted horizontally into the table and rest on two supports. If you order your table with more than 4 leaves, self storage is not possible. (See Glossary)

    3. Can I order additional extensions in the future?

      We recommend ordering all your extensions at the same time. The tables and extensions are built, sanded and finished as a whole for the best fit/finish. The builders also cut the table slides to a certain length, so there is usually not enough room to add them in the future.

Chairs:

  1. Can you match my current chairs?

    Unfortunately our builders cannot do a completely custom chair.

  2. Can I get upholstered seats on the chairs?

    Yes! The majority of our chairs can be ordered with cushioned seats with your choice of upholstery, faux leather and genuine leather. We offer two different sources for fabric: Heartland Fabrics / Greenhouse Fabrics. Or you can provide your own!

  3. Do you have table and chair sets?

    Because we have so many different products, we do not have pre-designed table sets. Our knowledgeable sales team would be happy to help make suggestions for you! You can also search our site by style. For example, you can search by mission style table and then for mission chairs. For the most part these would work to pair together.

Customizing:

    1. Can you make a custom height for chairs?

      Depending on the customization, it may be possible. For more information, contact our sales team with the chair and height you are interested in and they can get in touch with the builder.

    2. Can you customize the height of a table?

      Yes, for the most part we can customize the table height. For more information, contact our sales team with the table and height you are interested in and they can get in touch with the builder.

    3. Can you customize the width of a table?

      Customizations are possible, based on the style of table and width you are interested in. For example, leg styles can usually be made as small as 36” wide. Trestle and Double Pedestal tables can usually be made a little wider than 48” but not smaller than the 42” that is standard, due to the footprint of the bases. For more information, contact our sales team with the table and custom dimensions you are interested in and they can get in touch with the builder.

Stain Samples:

    1. Can you match the color of my furniture?

      It is possible to do a custom stain match. However, this service starts at $250. A sample would need to be sent to our finish shop and then they would work on a match and send it to you for approval.

    2. How do I order samples of stains?
