We’ve identified materials whose physical properties lend themselves to each specific application within our product line, and appeal to a wide range of aesthetics - from satin white lacquer on solid Maple, to rich, natural Walnut. Learn more below.
Walnut is among the most iconic, classic, and timeless furniture materials. It starts out as a dark-chocolate brown and beautifully ages over time to lighter, honey-color. Natural variations in grain and tone should be expected with Walnut.
Ash is a durable, timeless, and modern hardwood with sweeping, varied grain patterns that brings true character to your home. New ash starts as a pale cream and beautifully ages to darker straw-tan over time. Ash’s grain shines through the variety of stains and lacquers we offer on this material.
Oak is both classic, and modern. Extremely durable and versatile; new oak starts as a light brown and beautifully ages to deeper amber over time. We use Oak for our Dovetail Record Crates, and hand select boards that have exceptional character.
Maple is an extremely durable wood with a very fine grain pattern which lends itself to our solid lacquer finishes. Maple allows us to achieve a totally smooth lacquer finish in a variety of colors without wood-grain shining through.
17-ply Baltic Birch
Our premium Baltic Birch ply is composed of 17 layers of solid Birch veneer; cross-banded, and laminated with exterior grade adhesive with a void-free core. The birch are veneers sourced from northeast European forests bordering the Baltic Sea that gives this material its name. We use Baltic Birch for its fantastic structural and acoustic properties.
