Clear, Antique, Dark Walnut & Espresso
All wood finish choices shown including clear antique, dark walnut and espresso have a water based polyurethane varnish topcoat applied. Our finishes are eco-friendly, low VOC and very durable for everyday use and easy cleaning. The satin sheen topcoat perfectly compliments reclaimed wood.
Nicely sanded and has natural tones. If you like the look of raw un-stained and un-sealed wood or prefer to stain and finish your table on your own, natural might be the choice for you. We don’t highly recommend leaving our pieces un-finished especially dining tables. Unfinished wood will absorb liquids and food stains.
Special Note: With any natural /un-finished product we include a complimentary 2 oz jar of our all-natural Swilley’s Beeswax based wood conditioner that you may choose to as a wood conditioner/protectant. It has a nice matte sheen to it with no shine. It will resist liquids, but doesn’t offer full protection against them. It will enhance the wood grains, adding a warmer richer tone that looks very similar to the “Oil” sample shown above. It’s easy to apply and buff off and has a sweet orange smelling odor. This is only to be used on natural unfinished wood.
Our “Oil” finish is warm amber toned urethane. It is not a low VOC finish. It brings out the reddish tones and enhances the wood grains. In the past, the “oil” finish was used as our “go to” solution for durability in commercial environments. We have recently adopted conversion varnish as our standard top coat for commercial applications. See more info below.
The images shown in our gallery and the wood included in our sample packs may vary slightly depending on the original tones & patina of the wood. All solid wood tops are made with century old salvaged reclaimed Douglas Fir and Heart Pine planks and joists that have been deconstructed from warehouses, barns and homes throughout the mid-west. We also offer on a very limited basis, salvaged old growth White Oak for commercial clients. It is ideal for outdoor furniture use. Inquire for availability.
