Thank You for choosing Wengerd Wood Products furniture! We believe you will be quite pleased with the exceptional quality and construction we offer. We use premium North American hardwoods to build our furniture. All hardwood begins as a tree in the forest. It is carefully harvested in it’s prime for quality assurance. The tree is trimmed and the lumber goes through a drying process to prevent warping and cracking when used to build a fine table top or steam bent for a comfortable chair back. Variations in color may also be found in your furniture. This is another natural occurrence. Lighter areas indicate the area was closer to the bark of the tree while darker areas indicate wood found closer to the center of the tree. This is a unique feature found only in hardwood furniture. Our chairs are built with mortise and tenon joinery and then glued together for a strong, durable piece of furniture. After assembly they are hand sanded before being sent to our finishing facility.
