Here are some Frequently Asked Questions We Have Received About Our Furniture
What do I do if my furniture arrives damaged?
Contact us immediately by phone or email; explain damage and we will handle immediately to your satisfaction
How do I finish my furniture?
Water based finishes do tend to raise the grain of wood and will likely require a light sanding with 220 grit and recoating of your water based product.
- Oil/varnish combinations: the easiest to use, flood on, wipe off in 10-15 minutes; continue to touch up as needed.
- Oil/Water Based Stain: Your cedar chair can be stained any color utilizing a good brand of oil or water based stain; paint on, wipe off; maintain as needed. We use Ready Seal oil based stain. You can learn more about this product at www.readyseal.com
- Paint: to paint cedar you must first utilize an acrylic water based primer followed by a water based acrylic enamel top coat; if you do not use a primer, the cedar will always “bleed through”” your top coat.
What will happen if I don’t put any finish on my chair?
Over time your chair will change to a silver/gray color and tend to develop more surface checks.
