Solid Construction and Quick Shipping

Your furniture will be “bench made”

"Bench Made" means an individual craftsman works on each piece. With his signature on every piece he makes, he takes pride in creating something extraordinary.

Northern Red Oak

Our furniture is crafted from the best Oak money can buy: Northern Red Oak. This excellent hardwood gives our furniture tight grain patterns with beautiful, consistent color. All drawer fronts, raised panel doors, moldings and face frames are solid Northern Red Oak. Veneers are used to enhance and strengthen the quality of your furniture.

Solid Construction

A majority of all assembly is counter bored and screwed together construction. The back is 3/8" plywood. This creates our fantastic “no-flex” construction. Lift the corner of one of our pieces; you'll feel the solid construction yourself.

We use custom 3/4" oak plywood veneers for the sides of all our case goods. This custom plywood is more structurally sound than particleboard and will never split or warp as solid wood can.

The Full-Extension Super Guide System

The drawer Super Guide System starts with custom steel ball-bearing drawer guides, using 27 more ball bearings, for extra extension and a super smooth motion.

Next, nine-ply baltic birch drawer sides give superior structural integrity.

Finally, a high density plastic edge banding is added to the bottom of the drawer sides to make your drawers glide like magic.
