Wood Finishes

We offer six standard stains:

Wood FinishesOak - Oak is our lightest stain and falls into a more traditional golden oak color for those who prefer a more natural color tone.

Maple / Oak mix - Our maple oak mix is our base traditional mission furniture stain. This is a custom mixed stain which highlights the so-desired "ray fleck" found in mission quartersawn oak furniture. This is a lighter version of our classic stain.

Classic - This stain has been with us from the beginning, our flagship stain. Before we offered choices this is what you got. It is a secret mix designed to bring the wood to life and make the grain POP like no other stain. It features strong golden oak and orangish highlights with darker brown undertones to create maximum contrast. A very traditional stain with modern and vintage mission furniture.

Umber - Our umber is an extended branch of our classic stain except that is features reddish undertones instead of orange. It tends to be a tad darker than our classic but makes the grain POP just as well.

Brown - Our brown stain is just that, brown. For those who prefer a darker rich earthy color tone without any strong undertones distracting you. A very traditional dark mission stain.

Dark - Our dark stain is neck and neck with our brown stain for darkness. They are both very similar stains until the sunlight hits them. The dark has red undertones that the brown does not have that are more noticeable in natural light.



I have acquired a preference for certain hinges and pulls that I believe work very well with all of my furniture. I am happy to send you photos. I am also happy to use any hardware you may want, have or found somewhere.

Wood Selection

I always take extra care and hand select each and every piece that goes into all of my furniture. I try to use a balanced selection of oak using the most prominently figured stock for the top and most visible areas. I guarantee excellent grain and figure in each and every table. For customers seeking a very high-end grade of wood please ask about special orders in wood selection.
