Frequently Asked Questions
We have four standard finishes. Our most popular finish is honey oak.
If you look at the finishes on a spectrum, unfinished is just bare red oak wood. It is ready for staining or painting on your end, if you so desire.
Clear finish looks like a clear coating on the wood and enhances the wood grain, darkening it up a little bit.
Honey oak is a little darker and is more of a traditional stain color.
Dark might be described by many people as walnut.
All of our products are made from one of the most popular hardwoods in the United State, red oak. It is top-grade, kiln-dried lumber that make our units a long-lasting, quality piece of furniture. The backs on the cabinet units are MDF with an oak veneer.
They are made by hand in New Castle, Indiana by a team of lifelong woodworkers.
All of our products are hand-made, one at a time. Our dowel units use a combination of glue and a compression fit to hold the unit together. The cabinet units use one of the strongest construction methods, tongue in groove, to facilitate a strong and durable finished product. Both of these methods are used to alleviate the need for screws or nails, which can distract from the appearance of our quality products

We offer standard modification and advanced customization for customers who have specific requirements.
Good news! Our products arrive fully assembled, with the exception of attaching the feet for units that have feet. Feet come pre-drilled with the appropriate hardware and it’s easy to do with a drill.
Many of our units are designed to be free-standing floor units or sit on a desktop or another unit. The wall-mounted units take a fair amount of handyman skills to ensure the safety and proper leveling of the unit.
