Real Wood & Metal Furniture
Iron Mountain Forge & Furniture uses real wood and metals for all its cabinets, furniture and accessories. Many pieces are constructed with real logs and solid slabs of wood. We prefer and actually seek out wood with cracks, twists and color. This is the inherent character of wood and is not considered a defect. Natural wood will have knots and checking that we will fill unless it is requested to leave them unfilled.
Our reclaimed wood will have nail holes, board cupping, old pegs, patches, cracks, saw marks, water marks, worm holes, bug holes, sunspots, and dents. These attributes are not considered imperfections. We consider them character and believe they pay homage to the historical authenticity and original craftsmanship.
Our furniture, therefore, does not have to be artificially distressed providing an authentic look that will last for generations.
Wood adjusts different times of the year to the moisture content in the air. In a sense, the wood breathes and will adjust to the moisture content of your home. You may notice a slab move or even develop small cracks. A dry home may cause the wood to move or crack more than a home with proper humidity. Our wood slabs are kiln dried to minimize wood movement. Cracks are not considered a defect. If you requested epoxy in the cracks, the epoxy may also crack. This is also not considered a defect. Our workshop will fill cracks and knots with an epoxy filler unless requested otherwise.
Small cracks can be easily fixed by placing wood putty in with a plastic putty knife. Some clients prefer to highlight the cracks by dabbing black stain in for contrast. With proper care and maintenance your furniture will be around for many generations to enjoy.
Once manufacturing has begun we are required to charge a 25% cancellation fee due to the wastage of precious wood and labor costs. If manufacturing has not begun, but funds have been collected, a 5% fee will be charged on the total invoice amount.
Items may be returned within 14 days of receipt of goods. Items must arrive back to Iron Mountain Forge & Furniture in the same condition as when the left the warehouse. The original packaging material will greatly assist you in this endeavor. Custom items are not eligible to be returned.
Refunds, minus a 25% restocking fee and all shipping charges, will be issued within 7 business days, following inspection once the order arrives back in the warehouse. Refunds will be processed by the same means as payment was tendered.
We select shipping companies that agree to deliver our customer’s furniture in a timely and safe manner, however, please understand the shipping companies are run by their own policies and procedures, which are completely out of our control. Iron Mountain Forge & Furniture makes no guarantee furniture will be delivered by a specified date. We will provide an estimated date if requested, but this is not to be taken as a guarantee. Should this date not be met, it is not a valid reason to cancel the order.
Freight companies will deliver to your driveway, and lower the palletized furniture to the ground with a lift gate. The drivers will not move the crate at that point, it will be the responsibility of the customer. These deliveries are often with 50’ freight trucks so roads and driveways can sometimes be an issue.
Performed by smaller transportation companies, white glove service is also an available option at additional costs. This service will typically add 2-3 weeks to the transit time and should be considered if a smaller UPS-sized truck is necessary to reach your home or if you require inside delivery and assembly.
If visible damage to the crate appears to be slight, please note it on the Proof of Delivery form. Do not destroy the crate. Upon inspection of the contents, if you notice damage please take photos and send them to us as soon as possible. In most cases slight damage can easily be repaired with materials we will send to you.
If damage to the crate is severe you have the option of immediately refusing delivery of your order or to inspect the contents before accepting. Either way, you must note the damage on the Proof of Delivery form. Failing to note damage will affect the ability of Iron Mountain Forge & Furniture to file a damage claim on your behalf.

Solid wood reacts to the amount of humidity in your home. Long periods of low humidity will dry wood and cause splitting, cracking, and warping. Exposing your furniture to excessive dampness is also something that should be avoided. Controlling your indoor relative humidity year round between 40% – 45% will eliminate these problems. When arranging furniture in your home, be thoughtful to avoid heat vents and direct sunlight to prevent discoloration, drying, and cracking.
- If you find your bed to be loose, you are responsible for basic maintenance like tightening a bolt, wing-nut, or possibly a wood screw.
- If the identical materials are not available at the time of repair or replacement, we reserve the right to substitute materials of equal or greater value.
- The warranty does not cover furniture found to be abused, misused, exposed to improper humidity levels and/or unsanitary condition.
- The warranty does cover furniture that has been designated for use for commercial purposes such as, but not limited to a hotel, motel, or nursing home, but does not include wear and tear.
- Heirloom furniture is expected to gain minor checks, cracks and other imperfections as it ages through the decades. These minor imperfections are not considered defects.
- It is common knowledge that dining chairs will gain minor movement in their journey over a period of time/use. This is not a manufacturer defect but rather another example of a fine piece of furniture becoming an heirloom.
- Unfinished furniture will be void of this warranty.
