About Our Products
Quality Workmanship, Quality Materials
At Wolfcraft we refuse to compromise quality. We use select and better solid hardwoods for doors, drawer faces, and trim. For larger surfaces demanding greater resistance to warping and cracking, we use sliced solid hardwoods fused to MDF, a wood product engineered for its ability to tolerate a variety of temperature and humidity conditions.
Our drawer box design features 5-board construction consisting of full three-quarter inch solid ponderosa pine. The drawer joints are secured with fasteners coated in cellulose cement, providing ultimate drawer rigidity. European-style double-roller drawer glides are fastened securely to each drawer side with three screws, providing strength and smooth operation.
Our 7-step finishing process consists of:
-Meticulously finish sanding and thoroughly inspecting each piece
-Hand-wiping a generous application of a variety of wood stains.
-Pre-drying for fill and consistency and final drying using a clean cloth.
-Applying a generous coat of Sherwin Williams vinyl sealer.
-Hand sanding of each piece to ensure smoothness.
-Preparing for final coating by removal of sanding dusts and other debris.
-A final application of Sherwin Williams precatalyzed top coat by skilled craftsman to ensure even coverage.
We take pride in offering a product that is environmentally friendly. Wood is one of the most energy-efficient and renewable materials available. Our hardwoods are grown primarily in Northern Wisconsin, Michigan and Minnesota. We work with responsible tree-harvesters who ensure that forests are maintained so generations to come will be able to enjoy Mid-Western hardwoods.
Our distribution process also helps us keep our carbon footprint low. Instead of using high volumes of disposable packaging materials, we have invested in reusable blankets which are carefully wrapped around furniture for shipping. Some of our blankets have been in use for 25 years. The only road trip our furniture takes is from our facility in Central Wisconsin to local retailers on our own fleet of fuel-efficient trucks. No oceans are crossed and there is no “middleman” to lengthen the distribution process.
To maximize the environmental efficiency of our finishing process, we work closely with Sherwin Williams to ensure that we are using stains and lacquers with low VOC content.
Our personal approach to furniture craftsmanship means a wide variety of options are available to our customers. Every item that we make is available in oak or maple. We then offer a selection of ten different finishes and ten different hardware choices. Many additional person-touch options such as fully extendable drawer rails, hand-rubbed (antiqued) finish and dimmer lights are also available upon request. The result is literally millions of possibilities.
