Custom Furniture FAQ's

Here are some Frequently Asked Questions that we get!

What can I expect to pay??

This is by far the most frequently asked question that we get, so here are some general prices:

  • Dining Tables, $1,500-$5,000 

The price will depend on the species of wood and the thickness you choose to use for the table top and/or bench tops. Pine is the cheapest, Red Oak, Maple, and Cherry is your typical mid-grade wood species, and Walnut and White Oak is your high end wood species. The price will also depend on the length of your table, how many chairs that you go with, and if you want the base painted or if you'd like the legs to be stained to match the top of the table. For instance, if you go with a walnut table and you want walnut legs, you will see about price difference.


  • Buffets and Entertainment Centers, $800-$2000

The price will again depend on the wood species used for the top, if you want barn door sliders, shelving, etc. 


  • Coffee Tables, $350-$1500

The price will vary with size, style of legs, metal bases, and of course the species of wood used for the top.


What type of wood do you use?

We use kiln dried, furniture grade lumber. We DO NOT use construction or framing lumber for our custom builds. The type of wood contains too much moisture and will be more prone to splitting, cracking, and warping.

***Please note, even with furniture grade lumber, wood will expand and contract base on your home's humidity. BE SURE THAT THE HUMIDITY IN YOUR HOME IS BETWEEN 45%-55%!


How long does it take to build?

Our schedule fluctuates regularly, however, you can expect anywhere from 8-10 weeks from the time of purchase.


How do I pay?

We will send you an invoice for a 50% deposit. This allows us to order all of our materials and supplies to get started on the project. Upon completion, we can either send you an invoice for the final payment or you can write a check made out to Farmhouse Furniture KY, or you can pay via Venmo or PayPal.


Do you deliver?

Yes, we do. We travel up to 2 hours from our location in Williamstown, KY. If you need delivery, please mention that in the form below and we can give you a quote for that. 


Do you ship?

Yes, if you are over 2 hours away, we use a shipping company to ship our furniture. 


How do I clean my furniture?

Dusty with a dry microfiber rag. Clean splits immediately with a damp cloth or everyday cleaner. AVOID use harsh chemicals for cleaning as this will damage your finish.

Why Buy Custom Built Furniture

Highest Quality Lumber

Select the Exact Size that Fits Your Space

Select the Exact Size that Fits Your Space

Most furniture outlets sell high priced furniture that is simply not real wood. Veneer packaged on top of a MDF material. Facebook Marketplace is littered with pieces of furniture made from Construction Grade Lumber. This is a sub par material since this wood is still wet and will warp, split and crack over time as it dries. 


We give you the opportunity to select among the highest quality furniture grade lumber on the market and handcrafted to ensure that your piece of furniture will last generations.

You fell in love with a style table that someone had in their home or the big box furniture outlet had on the show room floor, however it doesn't fit your dining room or breakfast nook. No worries, send us a picture to custombuild@farmhousefurnitureky.com and we will give you a price for exactly what you need.

Joinery Method

Joinery Method

Joinery Method

Most table tops on Facebook Market Place are held together with pocket hold screws or simply, the boards are laid down next to each other with a small bead of glue. This is not a good idea. 


We use a biscuit joiner to for our table tops. A football shaped disc called a "biscuit" is mounted in a small incision in the middle of each board where they lay next to each other. The biscuit will  expand with glue and is clamped together used pipe clamps to ensure a strong, tight bond.

We mainly use kiln dried Eastern White from the mill. It has a lot of character from the knots and grain patterns. It is a softwood, so it will scratch easily. Over time you will have a few dings, but it is the most affordable material.
