We are a Shipped-Based Small Business
All our Craft kits come with instructions and hardware and the times to put them together depend on what product your bought. The time generally will take anywhere from 30 minutes to 90 minutes depending on how well you can do it.
We recommend that you use MARINE GRADE stain that you can find at any home improvement store.
Since most of our items are for the outside, we recommend that you get the exterior-grade paint of your choice.
We recommend that you cover, or pull our products out of the winter weather.
We ship two days a week. Because of the Township of Kalamazoo rules, we are limited to the number of times we can have heavy trucks in our area.
We only can be a "Ship-Base" small business because of the Township of Kalamazoo rules. They do not allow us to have customers come to the wood shop since we are a home-based business.
Yes, we do! Other than selling online, we also sell at Art Fairs and Events. Some of our local events are the Kalamazoo Art Fair, The South Haven Art Fair, and The Michigan Flywheelers Museum Arts & Crafts Fair.
Due to the rules and regulations from the Township of Kalamazoo, we are not allowed to have customers at our location or have retail sales on the property.
We sell all over the United States, and Canada, plus we have sold to England, Spain, France.
Yes, you can find our products in the mini-series "Station Eleven". Plus, we have done some other projects for Paramount Studios.
As you know, lumber prices go up and down weekly and since our products are made out of white pine, we keep track daily, and therefore, we have to change the prices.
Is Pine Wood Good for Furniture? While pine is very different than oak, it is also a good choice for furniture, depending on your purpose. It may not last quite as long as oak, but pine is still a strong, shock-resistant material suitable for furniture, particularly if you like the rustic or country styles.
Might pine furniture sustain nicks or dents more easily than other harder woods? The answer is yes, but that does not take it out of the running for serving your home furniture collection well. When it's built well, pine furniture can last for decades just like hardwoods.
Although pine is easy to cut and shape, it can be difficult to finish because it is easily scratched and dented and tends to soak up finishes. Before applying any finish, it is essential to carefully sand the wood to remove all scratches and create a smooth surface.
The look of natural wood is timeless, but pine can also be painted or stained easily to achieve an individual style or if you want to refresh your interiors in the future without investing in brand new furniture.
Pine takes on a pale yellow-orange tone after exposure to sunlight. Most finishes exacerbate the problem leaving wood which ages to a "cigarette yellow" tone. The best way to create a pale bleached effect is to treat with a thin coat of diluted White Wood Dye after sanding.
Pine is actually an excellent table top material. It will pick up dents and scratches over the years. It will, however, last a very long time. If well made, the table should last for a few decades at least.
Yes, Pine wood is strong. It is a very stiff softwood with relatively high compressive strength, density, and bending strength than most other softwoods. This makes pine wood strong and durable to use for making furniture, paneling, window frames, roofing, and many other woodworks.
