Product Care

From Our Customers

"The piece is beautiful. It is the new highlight of the room. The lines are beautiful, especially the Joinery (shaker style) kick. The Western Walnut wood is extraordinary."

Product Care

Depending on hardwood species and construction, your furniture from The Joinery will be affected by light, temperatures and humidity differently. Over the first few weeks and months, as the oil finish cures and the wood matures, you will want to be especially careful with heat and moisture and periodically move items sitting on the wood surface so the patina develops evenly.

We provide our customers with a brief guide to the care and maintenance of our furniture. It includes helpful advice about:

• First-year ownership
• How to steam out dents
• Metal maintenance
• Working with our finishing oils
• Adjusting doors
• Leveling cabinets
• Assembling beds
