Would you like to add a personal engraved message to your furniture?
Select "Custom Engraving" under Select Options. The engraving size we normally use translates to about 14 characters per foot. The default color for lettering is black. If you prefer a different color, let us know. There will be a small charge for changing the font color.
We will center the engraving on the top board of the backrest or the front of the seat trim of a backless bench unless you specify elsewhere. Please let us know your instructions on placement and line break(s) – if not specified, they will be placed at the shop's discretion.
If you'd like a particular font style, please send a Word or PDF document with the font, spacing, and the exact wording and punctuation you’d like. We will trace your document directly onto the wood. Send it to [email protected].
If you are undecided on your engraving message, and would prefer to send it after you place your order, just let us know in the comment box so we know to expect it later. Due to limitations of the engraving tool (we cut ¼” wide and ¼” deep into the wood), we may not be able do certain fonts and will let you know if there is an issue.
Assembly Instructions for: Heritage Picnic Benches
All You Need is a Few Tools and a Friend.
Assembly is best done by two people and usually takes about half a day to a day, depending on size. Pergolas need a ratchet wrench, a hammer and a ladder to put them together. In some cases, you might need a drill to attach the posts into concrete. As with all our products, we preassemble pergolas in our shop to ensure everything fits together. All hardware is included and all parts are clearly labeled before it is shipped. We also include detailed step-by-step instructions.
Take a look at our assembly instructions below for specific details. If you plan to pour concrete to hold the posts, the project will require an additional half day prior to assembly. Please do the concrete pour a few days prior to assembly to allow the concrete to cure.
Special talent is not required to re-assemble our pergolas. But, if you would like help, just let us know. We have our own team for installations in California, Nevada and Southern Arizona and a network of local contractors we recommend for farther afield.
Care: Your Forever Redwood Furniture will last for decades in year-round weather without maintenance.
Depending on the wood grade you choose, even with harsh year-round outdoor conditions, you can expect your furniture to last from ten to forty years without maintenance of any kind.
Being outside year-round is rough on any woods finish. The surface absorbs UV rays, pollution, constant variations in moisture and temperature and it also oxidizes. This is why most wood just doesn’t hold up and the surface color slowly changes towards a silver patina over the years. But, with Forever Redwood, you don’t have to worry. The silver patina is surface deep only (less than 1/64") and is not indicative of decay. Your set will last decades and is not compromised in any way by the surface color change. For example, we keep our display items as is without refinishing to show off this natural aging (we like the patina!).
Although Forever Redwood is maintenance-free, we recommended you take a few minutes as needed to clean by either hosing down and/or brushing/dusting away accumulated debris (no soap or chemicals needed). If you’d like to keep your set looking its best for decades, please go to: Care and Finish.
