We use natural stone and reclaimed wood with our products. Each item is handmade and no two will be exactly alike. Reclaimed wood may contain certain aged characteristics including but not limited to the following: dents, dings, divots, knot holes, missing chunks, old nail/screw/mortise holes, insect holes, splits, cracks, varying colors, leftover paints/stains and natural variations. This is intentional and gives our items a true rustic and unique look. Therefore, these are not considered defective. The digital images on our site are as accurate as possible. However, different monitors may cause colors to vary slightly.
