:: Material ::
Please note that these are not as of yet made from reclaimed wood! We are currently in the process of obtaining FSC certified lumber. Most customers want walnut, which is the one pictured above - walnut is a North American wood, but one of the most expensive and rare on the market. We rarely ever have salvaged walnut. If it is important to you that your arm wrap be made from salvaged wood (we salute you!), please contact us for the current wood options!
:: How we make it and what you are buying ::
This listing is for a couch arm wrap made of solid wood. Scroll down for dimensions. We make each of these wraps custom for your furniture, starting with raw native lumber that we cut and plane and laminate (cabinetmaking term for gluing) into wide surfaces, alternating the grain direction of each strip in order to minimize wood movement and maximize strength. We join the three surfaces, then sand to a satiny 180. We finish them with two applications of zero VOC all natural hard wax oil that is completely safe for us to work with, and completely safe for you and your family - no off-gassing, no chemicals, and instead of sitting on the surface like varnish, which is chemical and obscures the beauty of wood grain, it penetrates the fibers, strengthening the wood from the inside and leaving the silky natural wood surface. Our arm wraps are not screwed, nailed or made with any kind of metal fasteners. They are as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside, and will not mar your couch whatsoever.

:: Wood options ::
Image 1 shows the wrap in solid walnut on a thick square-arm couch. Image 2 & 3 shows the arm wrap in cherry on a thin armed couch with a side pillow.
Choose a wood from the drop down menu on the right. We do not stain the wood, we leave the natural tone of the solid wood and apply an eco hard wax oil finish.
:: Measurements ::
These are custom made for your couch. Dimensions are as follows, and the measurement we require from you is the width/thickness of your sofa arm. Image 5 illustrates how best to take this measurement - we recommend using two books and a flat ruler to get the most accurate measurement. Be careful not to apply pressure to the couch, thereby condensing any of the upholstery.

:: Eco Finish ::
We use a natural and non toxic finish on all our pieces. It is called hard wax oil and each item receives two coats. Hard wax oil is made up of natural oil, resin and wax and penetrates the wood, strengthening the fibres from within without leaving a film on the surface like varnish. It’s also completely food safe.
