Acting on that belief, each piece Brian Brace makes goes through an extensive series of time honored processes to achieve the highest quality standards. From thoughtfully selecting the finest lumber, to applying hand rubbed oil finishes, every step is carefully executed to ensure the finished piece is spectacular!
