Q. What woods are available for table edging?

A. Our standard is ash, which has the look and feel of oak. Other species such as oak, maple, birch and cherry are available. The up-charges per linear foot of edge for each species is specified in our price list.

Q. Are table tops available in surfaces other than laminate or wood?

A. Yes. We have produced tops in a variety of other surface, including Corian, Marmoleum, OSB (oriented strand board), Melamine and sheet metal. Please contact us to discuss your specialized requirements.

Q. How are laminated products manufactured?

A. Laminated products usually have a particle board core, although other materials such as MDF and plywood can also be used. A water soluble glue is applied to the core which is then sandwiched between the high pressure laminate sheet and a balanced backer sheet. This stack is then pressed under approximately 100 pounds per square inch of pressure for 45 min to 1 hour. At the end of the press when the glue is set the laminated panel can be cut and edged, either with wood, T-molding or self-edged with laminate.

Q. What colors and finishes are available on your products?

A. Our products are available in an almost unlimited range of finishes and colors. Our laminates are generally selected from WilsonArt, Formica, Nevamar or Pionite. If you have a design that calls for a laminate from a different manufacturer please contact the factory for a quote. We can build your product in any laminate that is available. Lumber for edges or for solid would tops is also available in almost any species. Wood edges are finished in any one of our large number of standard stains, and custom stain matching is also available for an additional charge.
