About our Finished Product

Old Hippy does not alter the wood's natural colour or characteristics. For this reason knots, mineral streaks and tree growth irregularities have been deliberately included in the manufacturing process to ensure the authenticity of the finished product.

Old Hippy offers quality stain matching and every effort is made to assure a good match. Due to aging and variations in natural wood colour however, matches cannot be guaranteed 100%.

*Please note: Catalog items finished using signature house brand stains may be eligible for exchange. Based on resale qualifications however, we are not in a position to offer this advantage with stain matches or custom orders.
