Frequently Asked Questions
Absolutely. All our products are available in your choice of plywood or solid wood. We recommend plywood because of its functional versatility and eco-friendly sustainability.
All our plywoods are engineered and made from real wood! We use them in our designs because they yield functional and distinctive furniture that is more economical, environmentally friendly, and generally easier to maintain (more climate, weather, humidity and moisture resistant) in most cases than that made with solid woods. Our plywood edge banding adds a seamless solid wood look and unlike solid wood, ply does not split or break during the manufacturing process.
Because we are not fans of nor recommend particle board for furniture, we will use it to manufacture your order ONLY if you specify it.
We offer a full range of solid wood options and capabilities including live edge surfacing and routing for tabletops and more. In general the difference between plywood and solid wood furniture is reflected in price with the latter being more expensive. Solid woods take longer time and more expense to sustainably grow and harvest. Because they can also split or break during the manufacturing process solid wood items generate more costly waste adding to manufacturing expense.
