Please be sure to take note of the terms and conditions listed below before agreeing to purchase with us:

terms of use


  • Wood is a natural product, and colours may vary significantly from samples or
    physical products you may have seen previously. Natural wood features such as knots and checks are considered acceptable  and are not quality problems in the end product.
  • We choose wood pieces randomly from the stock we have but we will always try to match up to what you want.
  • Our furniture is hand crafted, therefore you may find minor surface unevenness or imperfections which are evidence of our style of hand-crafting.
  • Colour change and wood movement are natural features of wood, with tolerances of up to 5mm per linear metre acceptable for bowing, warping and sagging. This movement will often change with seasons and humidity fluctuations.
