In most cases it is used to fill holes from nails used in the framework or to smooth over any imperfections in the recycled timbers or natural imperfections in the hardwoods.
  • The nature, colour, grain structure, appearance and staining of all solid timber furniture requires an appreciation that every piece will be different due to the nature of the product. As our finishes are subject to everyday wear and tear they cannot be warranted. No guarantee can be offered in respect to specifying colour or grain on the natural hardwoods. No two pieces are ever the same.

Not guaranteed are any defect caused by:

  5. Defects resulting from the use of polishes or substances warned against in the care instructions.
  6. Defects caused by any stress placed on furniture due to its placement on an uneven surface.

  • It is by customer request on delivery that the plastic slides be removed from underneath furniture. These allow easy transport and minimise damage to the base of the furniture. They also add to the protection of your floors when moving furniture around, but may cause problems with larger units sitting level. Should you require them to be removed, this can be attended to on delivery.
  • It is the responsibility of the customer to return goods to place of purchase in the event of any items requiring service or repair.

TIMBER FURNITURE CARE INSTRUCTIONS

To maximise the life and beauty of your Naturally Timber Furniture, please follow these simple guidelines:

  • Timber should not be placed on damp or wet surfaces or exposed to direct sunlight or extreme heat. Extremes in temperature due to heaters, fireplaces and air-conditioners will contribute to the decline in moisture content and can affect the life and look of your Naturally Timber Furniture causing it to split, move and warp.
  • Avoid placing abrasive items directly on your furniture and always place a protective pad, placemat or coaster under hot dishes, teapots, saucepans, pizza boxes etc. Naturally Timber Furniture surfaces have been treated with a heat resistant lacquer, but will not tolerate excessive heat. The heat transfers through the lacquer and marks the timber itself as well as marking the lacquer.
  • Spills should be wiped off immediately with a soft cloth. Our lacquer is water resistant, but not capable of dealing with excessive amounts. The liquid will eventually seep through the lacquer and cause swelling, blistering and irreparable damage to the timber if exposed to excessive amounts of water.
  • Every 6-12 months give the timber a light application of bee’s wax. Waxing is a protection against splitting and warping as well as nourishing the timber and beautifying it naturally.
  • Please avoid any contact between your Naturally Timber Furniture and nail polish, acetone, methylated spirits, textas, markers, fragrant oils, glues and any cleaning products containing silicone.
  • Avoid covering your furniture for prolonged periods of time. Moisture can collect under the covering and cause damage to your furniture.
  • Please place your Naturally Timber Furniture on a level surface to prevent any unnecessary stress. Any furniture that requires leveling due to an uneven floor is the responsibility of the customer.
