This table is just an instant classic, am I right???
We were approached by a larger business to create a farmhouse style with a traditional twist sofa table. We custom built this table from the ground up just for them! We used General Finishes pre-stain wood conditioner and followed with the General Finishes Antique Walnut gel stain and sealed with their Arm-R-Seal in a satin finish.
"Another custom request out the door. Lynn wanted a Walnut log slice end table for her daughter so we made it happen! After removing all the bark we sanded it, epoxied the cracks in the wood and sealed it in General Finishes Arm-R-Seal in Semi Gloss. The customer got to pick the legs and the specific height she wanted and that's it!!" - Upcycling by Amy
"Slowly but surely I’ve been working on finishing my basement this year, which includes all sorts of custom work including my new bar!

Finished it with General Finishes Conversion Varnish."

The rowing machine was finished using General Finishes Dye Stain and High Performance Topcoat. All finishes were applied to premium Baltic plywood. The rower has two main finsihed parts; the outer frame and the inner frame. The first step was to raise the grain with a water spritz then sand with 220-320-grit sandpaper to know down the "hairs". A Custom formula of Cabernet and Amber Dye Stain was mixed to achieve the rich, reddish color for the outer frame. General Finishes Enduro Extender...
"The White Oak used to make this dining set traveled half-way across the country from a custom sawmill in New York, owned and operated by Margaret Liebert’s father.

We are so honored that you chose us to make this special piece for you that can be passed down through the family for years to come. How wonderful it will be...

"Wrapped up a large built in bookshelf yesterday for a customer in Pittsburgh. All custom made using a combination of birch plywood, MDF and solid poplar.

"The massive maple round coffee table is finally at home! The customer came to us with a rustic “stump” base in mind, and a maple cookie top, so we rummaged around and found a burled ambrosia maple crotch outside and went to work with the chainsaw!
