European hard wax oil is used because it does not contain petrochemicals so it is VOC-free. It does not stink like big box store stains which require respirators to apply. The hard wax oil is plant oil based and, like the linseed oil and teak oil finishes, is applied to the wood, allowed to soak in and then wiped to remove excess oil. It does not cover the wood texture like paint but rather collects more in the grain and brings out the patterns and beauty.

Made with minimal environmental impact and constructed to withstand generations of use. The Western Maple used is actually harvested as a secondary item during softwood harvests. The hardwood supplier has received a certificate to sell “Chain of Custody” products under the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) rules as administered by Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) for their softwood harvests.
Every possible board foot of maple is used, donating the smallest off-fall to local schools and community centers for woodshop projects or low-income families for heat during the winter months. The sawdust is recycled into compost at a local lawn and garden center. The manufacture is committed to finding harmony within our environment and securing the future of this unique planet called Earth.
