WOOD CHOICES

The wood used for each piece is hand selected by Bowes Woodworking. Bringing out the uniqueness of each piece is essential in creating a beautiful and vibrant piece of furniture. You may request wood with more or less detail, with knots or not. We will do our best to create the pieces to highlight aspects of the wood you love.

With the exception of the last picture, all the images below have been taken after the wood has been sanded and coated with polyurethane. Polyurethane creates shine and protects the wood. The last one has been finished with Linseed Oil alone.

Place your curser over each image to display the names of the woods shown.
