02) WILL YOU STAIN OR PAINT THE FURNITURE FOR ME?:

04) SORRY BUT NO TWO TREES ARE ALIKE!!

Differences in color and grain are produced by nature in all woods. These natural characteristics create the beauty and interest found in all fine wood products. Only the artificial will be perfectly uniform in texture and grain. Real wood will show wide variations when finished (dark or light areas, knots etc.) nature created these variations and they cannot be eliminated.
