Frequently asked questions

We use reclaimed scaffold boards in all of our furniture. Each piece of timber has its own character and tones. Our wax oil finish brings out the beauty of the wood highlighting the individual characteristics in each board.

We use Osmo hard wax-oil on our furniture. This comes in 7 Colour options. The wax-oil offers a hard wearing durable finish that is both water and heat resistant.

You can click here to purchase our aftercare solution which is made specifically for the wax-oils we use, or you can use a delicate cleaner without harsh chemicals, you can also give the furniture a wipe over with a damp clean cloth.

Our tabletops have been expertly jointed in our workshop meaning there are no gaps between the boards, this not only looks far better but also means you won’t get crumbs and spillages stuck in between boards

The reclaimed wood we buy has been kiln dried so this should hugely reduce any splitting, bowing or twisting or your furniture. You can also reduce this further by not placing your items in direct heat ie conservatories, over radiators or too close to a wood burning stove.

In short, yes we do, in fact it's a big part of our business. Get in touch with us via info@outhouse-byhand.com with your requirements.
