Bench*Made Maple handcrafted furniture finishes include 9 wood tones in medium to low sheen, 2 weathered finishes, and 5 painted finishes. Bench*Made Oak is available in 2 finishes and wire-brushed to open up the grain and allow the finishing material to amplify the textural effect.
For each finish, a variety of stains and glazing materials are applied in multiple steps to build the color and accentuate the grain patterns. The final top coat on all finishes is a catalyzed conversion varnish that cures the finish in a way that’s far superior to conventional drying ovens and lacquer topcoats, protects the solid wood artisanry from the harsh heat, and provides outstanding protection. Visible knots, voids, and insect markings are nature’s signatures, enhancing the beauty of the wood.
With artistry, precision, and painstaking attention to detail, Bassett’s finest craftspeople with expertise in making Bench*Made furniture create pieces by hand. One at a time. Literally. As a matter of fact, the entire Bench*Made line is made old school, in Bassett, Virginia where Bassett started making handcrafted, high-quality furniture back in 1902.
For Bassett, a handcrafted furniture company offering real furniture from America - local, skilled artisans, simple tools, enduring construction techniques, and time-honored woodworking benches (where the term “bench made” comes from). Most other hand-crafted furniture makers can’t say this.
