Reaver's Woodworking

Wood & Stains

We value the unique properties of every piece of lumber. We hand-select them for the grain patterns which determine the ultimate placement within the furniture. Fine woods, properly finished, catch and refract light creating an elusive sense of movement in the surface. It's a sensation which can't be fully described with words.

Like icing makes a cake, a great finish makes a piece of furniture a true heirloom. Hand finishing assures that the maximum beauty of the grain you have chosen will dazzle you and your guests for years to come. We can match any stain you have in mind or from an existing piece of furniture.

Following in the footsteps of some of America’s finest wood workers, every piece of wood is lovely hand rubbed to bring out its natural beauty. Many steps are involved: fine hand-sanding of the topcoat; two coats of pre-catalyzed lacquer finally a sanded between coats to create the smoothest, richest finish imaginable.
