Red Stick Woodworks
Here are some Frequently Asked Questions We Have Received About Our Furniture
How do I finish my furniture?
- Oil/varnish combinations: the easiest to use, flood on, wipe off in 10-15 minutes; continue to touch up as needed.
- Oil/Water Based Stain: Your cedar chair can be stained any color utilizing a good brand of oil or water based stain; paint on, wipe off; maintain as needed.
- Paint: to paint cedar you must first utilize an acrylic water based primer followed by a water based acrylic enamel top coat; if you do not use a primer, the cedar will always “bleed through”” your top coat.
What will happen if I don’t put any finish on my chair?
Over time your chair will change to a silver/gray color.
How can I find out about your new products?
By checking our website from time to time. We update our website on a regular basis.
Can you make the furniture with other woods?
Yes. Cypress is a local product that is readily available. It must be sealed to guard against rotting and we apply the initial coat at the time of your purchase.
