Each piece of furniture is handcrafted from solid beech. Marlin Designs, LLC uses beech because it is strong, has a high shock resistance and is resistant to splitting, giving the customer a well-built and durable piece of furniture. The lacquer finish on the furniture can be chosen to compliment the wood’s natural soft, reddish tinge or it can be stained to the richness of color desired. Upon request we can also use other wood species, such as; alder, oak, or pine.
All of the materials we use are made in the United States, from the wood, to the Valspar lacquer and stains, to the hardware used to assemble the furniture. We chose the lacquers from Valspar for the hard and beautiful finish that it yields which is resilient for residential or commercial use.
Every piece of furniture is custom made and hand carved to your specifications. From the first cut of wood, to the final finishing touches, your furniture never leaves our facility. All of the molding, carving and upholstery are done inside our factory.
The manufacturing facility located just across the border in Tecate, Mexico, allows for a quicker turn around on your custom furniture – six weeks for small orders up to ninety days for large orders. Orders are placed on a truck at the factory and delivered to the customer’s site without the need for oversea transfers or delays.
