Polishing takes 15 manual applications with stains and water-based colors. This process brings out the texture of the wood (which by nature is not homogenous), and can create differences in color tones that add to the value of the piece and cannot be considered a reason for dissatisfaction. All sales samples (stains and wood varnishes, textile and leather colors, etc.) should be considered indicative, since the finished product is handcrafted. This is why exact color matching is not possible for furniture produced at different times.
