Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What finishes do you offer?

  This is the finish you see in the photos above. This steel is cleaned of any rusty coloring and then sealed with a special rust preventing coat. The result is a graphite grey coloring. It will still show the blemishes of the raw material, making every piece unique. There is a slight sheen to this finish, but you can still feel the texture of the metal.

  Unfinished steel is best for those planning to finish the metal themselves. It will show a varying amount of blemishes and rusty coloring. This can also be very nice if you want that truly rustic steel table leg look. Keep in mind though, it will eventually need to be sealed to prevent too much rusting.
