Craftworks has chosen environmentally friendly water-based finishes for
our massage tables. Water-based finishes are much gentler on the
environment than the more commonly used, solvent-based finishes, which
release VOCs (volatile organic compounds) into the atmosphere.
The luminous finish on our eastern hard-rock maple is
achieved through use of a water-based lacquer specially formulated for
Custom Craftworks. This remarkably tough finish is kinder to the
environment and safer for our employees. And, like every aspect of a

flora and fauna, help maintain moisture in our environment and bless us
with their beauty. To protect our precious natural resources, Custom
Craftworks chooses premium hardwood maple and poplar harvested from
sustainable-yield tree farms.
Our kiln-dried poplar perfectly suits our table frame, the
most stable and flex-resistant table top on the market. These fast-growing
poplars, grown in eco-tree farms and elsewhere, are an important species.
They provide shelter and windbreak, remediate polluted soil and retain
moisture, carbon and minerals in the topsoil.

This credo of our local Eugene, Oregon recycling company
is one we whole-heartedly endorse. Thatís why we conscientiously recycle
everything we can, from wood scraps and sawdust to foam pieces and office
supplies. Many of these items are transformed into useful products like
particleboard, carpet padding and fresh reams of paper.
We invested over $200,000 in a state-of-the-art
computerized router. This precision tool allows us to optimize the layout
before cutting so that almost every piece of plywood yields a needed part.
This has produced a significant gain in yield efficiency while producing
parts with extraordinary precision.
Making full use of our natural resources is our way of
showing respect for all that we have been given. It is a part of our
