Our tables are quality built. We can make tables in many different types of wood. Please keep in mind that “Rustic” furniture may have old nail holes, sawmill marks, and we have even had a table that contained a charred crack that was created by lightening. Each piece of reclaimed wood is unique. For tables that are built with lumber from the sawmill, we have the ability to make them look like reclaimed wood. The amount of distress added to each piece will be determined when we establish item details with you. These are the things that give our furniture character. These “character” marks do NOT mean it isn’t QUALITY built! If you are looking for a table with no rustic marks, and looks more like a “fine dinning” showpiece…our furniture is not for you. Wood will expand and contract depending on the humidity in its’ environment. There may be times when a small gap between planks are seen. This is normal, and part of the character of the table.
