Most Popular FAQ’S For ECustomFinishes
About Our Products:
Are your products child friendly and durable?
Our finishes are the highest quality available, and cannot be penetrated by normal every day wear and tear via children, such as from paint, markers, crayons, scratches, dings and watermarks. Furthermore, our reclaimed woods are naturally weathered hiding any mistakes that may occur. In addition, all of our high quality paint and stain finishes are eco friendly, and can be cleaned using only water, no need for added chemicals via commercial cleaners or polishes, making our furniture the most child friendly items available.
Is your furniture 100% solid wood?
Yes, 100% solid wood. The materials that are used in the construction of our furniture are 100% solid reclaimed wood. Unlike many other makers, there are no wood mixtures, wood composites, veneers, particle board or fiberboard. In addition, all wood is sourced from America.
Where is your furniture made?
We are very proud to be American made 100% every step of the way! This includes the domestic the sourcing of the wood, milling, our American made paints and finishes, our only location in Mass and our wonderful employees.
How strong is old reclaimed wood? Very strong!
Old pine normally comes from older slow growth (60-150+ year) trees, which produce tighter grains, verses today’s fast growth (30 year) pine. Because of age and wear old pine has also become a bit petrified due to exposure to the elements. Old pine scores approximately 2x higher than new pine on the wood hardness test know as the Janka scale.
Janka Scale: higher number = harder wood:
- New pine 350-400
- Old Pine 650-700
- Old Oak 1250-1300
- Old Chestnut 540-600

A standard 1” table top (actual thickness =.75 -.875”) is structural strong enough for most tables. Thicker tops are primarily for appearance’s sake unless the table is very long and/or very wide. Watch our video about 1″ or 2″ table tops for a better understanding.

Yes, this is a great option for those in smaller spaces. You can order 1 or 2 extensions at 18” built to match the rest of the table. We also offer drop leaf options. Click here for a good example of our extensions.
Do you offer only the table base, or tabletop?
Yes, for a small extra fee you can order either the tabletop or table base only.
Do you offer unfinished products?
