Our Olde World Aging process invigorates our furniture, revealing facets that normally take a hundred years to create.
You may order A, B, or C level Olde World Aging on any of our standard woods. Select any of the stain colors that are standard on those woods or one of the Opaque Premium colors that are approved for other woods (see the Olde World samples). Example, you could ask us for Level A Olde World Aging on Soft Maple with Bourbon stain and no wax. You would just need to add 25% to the soft maple price for that item. Our Olde World samples are all made of Character Cherry, which we feel is best suited for the technique because of the natural character it offers including open knots, small cracks, and other “imperfections” that help us mimic natural aging. Some of the Olde World colors are only available on character cherry or premium grade cherry. See the back of the samples at your local dealer.
All up-charges are to be added to the base price of the item, in the wood of your choice. You don’t need to add the markup to any additional options. Each stain color we offer in the appropriate wood is included in the Olde World options. So, even if the color you choose is a premium color you will only be charged the Olde World Aging fee.
Distressing with a wire brush reveals the unique wood grain of your piece, highlighting the enchantment obtained from synthesizing weathered wood with refined design. When you order the Wire Brushed Option, we apply our 5 Degree sheen varnish. Available on all woods.
As the name implies, this scalloped, wavy look on wood is laboriously arrived at by a craftsman’s expert hands and finely calibrated tools. Think of it as handscaping on fine wood. Available on top surfaces only. Priced per square foot. Not available on Oak, Quartersawn White Oak or Hickory.
