FAQ

Ordering:​

 

We will carefully fill your order and send you everything you need to succeed in the assembly of your piece, including documentation for assembly and finishing.  We offer safe and secure purchasing via credit/debit card or PayPal.  Feel free to Contact Us if you have any questions before, during or after your order. tell a story and let your users know a little more about you. 

 

Assembly:

 

Assembly of your piece is easier than Ikea.  We have placed pins to allow for easy alignment and perfect glue ups.  When applying glue, make sure to stay clear of the edges to avoid unnecessary squeeze-out.  Squeeze-out can easily be wiped off while it's still wet or sanded off after it has dried.  Use clamps or heavy objects to force the pieces together.  CNC tolerances are press-fit together to assist in clamp-free assembly.  We recommend CAREFUL dry-fit of parts together prior to final glue-up.

Finishing:

Finishing can be as easy or as complex as you feel comfortable with.  The white oak veneer matches the baltic birch plies nicely, so you can finish as light or as dark as you want.  Traditional finishes tend to be on the darker side which will subdue the visibility of the plies.  Regardless of the color, we recommend General Finishes Arm-R-Seal as the top coat as an easy and durable finish.  This information is included in the documentation included in your kit.

Supplies:

You will not need any dominos, dowels, biscuits, figure 8s or screws to assemble your piece, as they are included in your kit.  If you need glue, clamps, finishing supplies or anything else to complete your assembly, we can provide it for you.  Feel free to contact us as needed.

​Pricing:

 

Although the plywood is upcycled, the time on the CNC machine, chiseling, prepping the parts and getting the kits ready for shipping are very expensive.  We have worked very hard to establish pricing that makes it affordable for the vast majority while still being able to stay profitable.

Shipping:

 

All kits ship in a rugged plywood crate and the parts are carefully wrapped.  Shipping is based on the weight of the piece plus its packaging.  We have worked hard to minimize the cost of flat-pack shipping your furniture.

 

Kits:

 

In addition to the parts of the kit, we also provide all of the necessary dominos, dowels, figure 8s, and screws necessary to assemble the piece.  We offer glue or clamps as needed to assemble your piece.

Returns:

If, for some reason, you need to return your purchase, you will need to return it unglued and unfinished in its original packaging.  You will need to pay for return shipping and we will refund your full purchase price.  We cannot refund return shipping and consider that the equivalent of a restocking fee.


Fit & Finish:


All parts will receive a 1/8" chamfer to ease the edges and are sanded to 150 grit. Our CNC tolerances are within 0.002" so you will enjoy almost perfect alignment of your parts.  All tenons will be hand-chiseled to fit their mating parts as the CNC can't make square interior corners.
