Each piece is made from ½ " thick Oak or Pine which has been fine sanded, stained, hand rubbed with 6-7 coats of Tung Oil. After each tung oil coat is applied and allowed to dry, the surfaces are hand buffed to bring out the beauty of the grain and colors of the wood on all the external and internal surfaces. Tung Oil is one of the most durable and attractive furniture finishes. It is used by furniture manufacturers, woodworking craftsmen and do-it-yourself hobbyists alike to finish fine wood furniture and shelving.
All of the solid wood pieces are compression glued and the corners of the box reinforced for maximum strength and durability. Prices are also available for other materials.
