Pacific Rim Natural Maple Bedroom Furniture
Many manufacturers claim their furniture is made of natural wood, but in reality the pieces have drawers or other parts made of particle board or veneers. And while they state they use a non-toxic finish, they often use petroleum-based varnishes and stains that may be harmful over time. We chose to carry Pacific Rim Woodworking because they are committed to producing truly natural, heirloom-quality, hand-crafted maple furniture at affordable prices.
This beautiful bedroom furniture is built by skilled craftsmen in Eugene, Oregon. It is made of Pacific Coast Maple grown in managed forests in Washington and Oregon, and constructed using mortise and tenon joints.
To highlight the natural beauty of the distinctive hardwood, Pacific Rim hand-rubs each piece with their own blend of tung oil, linseed oil, and Varathane, a non-toxic finish that is completely inert after dried. Beeswax is added to the tops of dressers and nightstands for added scratch protection. For those who are very chemically sensitive, you may wish to order your furniture unfinished and have the non-toxic finish of your choice applied. Or order their new Danish oil finish called Tried and True. There will be an up-charge for this finish and production takes 2-3 weeks longer; see furniture price page for more information.
Pacific Rim Beds come with a sturdy platform of closely spaced hardwood slats joined together by jute webbing. Sizes larger than twin are bolstered by a center beam. These beds are the ideal support for our Pure-Rest natural latex mattresses. Some assembly is required on beds and cribs. Pacific Rim furniture is guaranteed to be free of defects in materials and workmanship. CLICK HERE for prices and details.
- The Pacific Rim Commitment -
only are we committed to providing a product that is made with
minimal environmental impact but constructed to withstand generations
of use. With its straightforward design and sturdy construction
a significant contribution is made to the environment by limiting
the use of untapped resources to create replacement products.
We feel that it is not only important to use our resources wisely,
but to practice conservation whenever possible
We strive to use every possible board foot of maple, donating
the smallest off-fall to local schools and community centers
for wood shop projects or low-income families for heat
during the winter months. Recycling bins can be found in
lunchroom and shop. Our sawdust is recycled into compost
at a local lawn and garden center. We have a strict maintenance
schedule for our machinery to minimize replacement needs
and often opt to fix a machine rather than replace it.
In cases where replacement is necessary, we scour the secondary
markets for the perfect “gently used” tool.
Non-toxic Wood Finish
According to Pacific Rim, their furniture is hand-finished with a custom mixture of tung oil, linseed oil and Varathane—a non-toxic finish that is completely inert after dried. The furniture can also be ordered unfinished so you can have a finish of your choice applied.
