Each and every item from Beyond Borders Imports, LLC is hand-crafted from start to finish. Many traditional "Old World" methods are used in the construction. Beyond Borders Imports does not mass-produce product, nor do we use veneers or particle board. Our solid wood products are constantly responding to their environment; therefore, the furniture has a subtle distressed look. Some splitting, cracking, chipping and glazing may occur. Most who see our product think the “perfectly imperfect” nature of the wood and finishing methods create an antique, but spirited, look that is part of the charm and appeal of the product. Our products are made from materials taken from nature, as nature provides them... unique, beautiful, and “perfectly imperfect”. For items offered in our Java Catalog, some mahogany and teak plywood may be used on the back side or bottom of the drawers. This is not wood substitute or filler, but instead the same quality wood used in the rest of the piece. With our individual workmanship and handcrafted techniques, there may be slight differences in dimensions, color, or finish. All hardwood furniture is recommended to be stored in climate controlled environments. Extreme cold or heat exposure to solid woods can cause warping, cracking, and separation of wood planks. In addition, it recommended hardwood furniture be kept with a relative humidity between 50-55%.
