All of our furniture is built to order and in general we schedule furniture to be built in the order it was received. However, sometime it makes sense to batch several orders together to increase production efficiency. This is particularly true with chair orders. If someone orders only 1 chair we may wait until another order of chairs comes in before making the single chair. It's also possible that we're about to make a set of chairs when a single chair is ordered and it makes sense to make it right away. We will also sometimes push an order ahead of schedule if we happen to have the wood for that order but don't yet have the wood for an earlier order. In general though, you can expect your furniture to be completed and ready for shipping about 8-12 weeks after your deposit is received. If you would like an estimate of lead time based on our current back log please call or email.
