How do I clean and care for my live edge furniture?
- To remove dust use a soft, clean cloth, dusting with the grain. The cloth may be dampened with a furniture care polish. Avoid products that leave an oily film on the furniture as they may cause a clouding of the finish and have a tendency to collect dust.
- Twice a year, you may thoroughly clean the piece. The furniture may be washed with a mild soap designed to clean wood or a furniture cleaning product available in most stores. Always follow the directions on the product, use a soft cloth and wipe with the grain, and dry thoroughly with a cloth.
- Avoid using oily polishes or waxes.
- Immediately wipe any spilled liquids from the surface with a soft, slightly damp cloth, in the direction of the wood grain.
- Scratches from normal everyday use may be noticed on furniture over time. Touch up products found in furniture stores, such as a scratch remover or special touch-up pens/sticks may be used.
- This table is not to be designed for use as anything other than its intended purpose. Do not stand on or otherwise place more than 50 pounds for coffee tables; or 100 pounds for dining tables.
- JCDC Woodworks furniture should not be exposed to extreme heat or humid conditions. Do not place this piece near a heating source or an open window. Avoid direct sunlight to prevent fading the finish.
Why live edge?
Live edge furniture designs are largely based on the “modern industrial design”, when industrial spaces were converted into living spaces. Since JCDC Woodworks is located in rural West Virginia, we understand the value of natural beauty and the irony of incorporating that beauty into spaces formerly used by machinery. Live edge furniture, by its very design, fits well into these concepts. From our point of view living in West Virginia, we see live edge tables as bringing nature, which surrounds us, into our living spaces and therefore integrating nature into our daily experience.
