We use solid wood for
everything, except for the occasional drawer bottom made from hardwood
plywood. We never use any particle board for anything! Who wants furniture
made from sawdust held together with formaldehyde and wrapped in brown
woodgrain paper? Not you, and not us.
We use talent and
imagination to mimic the effects of time and use, not toxic coatings. All our
finishes are kid safe and environmentally friendly. But don't worry, they're
tough, too. After we're done with our magic, we put a clear, low luster topcoat
to help your purchase look great and wear well. You can order most any finish on any piece in the catalog. Call or
e-mail if you have questions --we're pleasant.
Good design is
timeless. That's why real antiques are hard to find. We scour books, museums,
and dealers for examples we can copy or adapt, and you'll find you'll never
want to part with one of our Instant Antiques.

All our furniture is
made right here in Maine, and constructed and finished by hand.
