Wood appearance

We supply high-quality furniture grade wood. This may vary for grain, colour, knots and other markings. We do our best to select and match as appropriate but we cannot accept returns on the basis of natural variations. Any special requirements for colour, matching, etc. must be provided in writing.

Wood warpage, shrinkage, and dimensional changes

Wood is an active material, in that it is known to have dimensional changes depending upon moisture, temperature, humidity etc.

Sometimes warpage, shrinkage etc, can occur, especially when the furniture is shipped to drier climates from where it was made. We will accept returns if the timber was not appropriately dried but we cannot accept returns that stem from climactic differences. Should movement occur in the wood addressing issues of temperature and moisture usually resolves the issue.
