Hardwood Creations: Fine Woodworking, Artistic Beauty is the Foundation of Their Work May 1, 2016 By Kris Olson Leave a Comment Our approach to the craft of fine woodworking is simple: We make each item as if it were our own. Durability, practicality, and artistic beauty are the foundations of our work. We begin by selecting the finest materials from a variety of domestic and imported hardwoods. Then we combine traditional and modern woodworking techniques, including tongue and groove, dovetail joinery, and/or aliphatic pressure bonding followed by sculpting, shaping, and sanding. Each piece is finished with a mineral oil or multiple coats of clear lacquer to enhance the natural beauty of the wood. No stains, paints, or dyes of any kind are used.
