Before committing to the project we usually meet with client at the space which the piece of furniture is intended for that way we can take proper measurements and finalize all the design details.
At the meeting we also discuss the type of finish and later on provide samples, which need to be approved by the client.A 50% deposit is required in order to start the work on the project.

How we price things
General speaking, labor is more of a factor than materials. It takes a lot of time to make a quality piece of furniture.
Moving parts, such as door and drawers add expense. Certain processes are much more expensive than others. Hard woods are more difficult to work with than softer ones. Tables with slides and leaves, for example, take more time to make than those without.
Certain woods are not only more expensive for us to acquire, but are much more difficult to work with because of their grain structure or sheer hardness.
We provide alternatives to our customers to lower the costÂ on certain projects, for example a walnut veneered table would cost less than a solid walnut one, and would look almost the same.
As always we use quality woods and materials for the best possible results so your piece of furniture will last and function well for a long period of time.
