About the Furniture Kits

Our kits are designed to provide the DYI enthusiast with all the materials and instructions necessary to produce an attractive finished product. We've done all the research, tracked down the components, machine cut the parts and laboured over the instructions. Each project has been tested in a workshop situation to make sure it's easy to finish. All our kits can be completed with only small hand tools, paint and glue. You get to do the fun part - putting it all together!

If you are ordering kits for a group project, we will give your club a 10% discount on 10 or more kits of the same project.

TIP: We recommend using a small plastic glue bottle with a metal tip for dispensing the tacky glue used in all the wicker projects. Our experience has been that it is more accurate and less messy than using a toothpick or the hypodermic type glue guns. See section on Supplies. Glue Bottle With Metal Tip
