Our Process

One of the things we pride ourselves on here at Southern Rust Furniture is that we do EVERYTHING in-house. Here’s how we ensure the highest quality for your furniture:

Sourcing Materials

Steel: Our steel is purchased in bulk from a local supplier and cut specifically for your piece. Once welded in place, each piece is cleaned and then coated in a protective coating to prevent rust.

Wood: The wood we use on most pieces is sourced from a local supplier. We stay away from big box stores, as we like to support small businesses in our local area.

Crafting Your Piece

  1. Planning to ensure all pieces are the same thickness.
  2. Cutting the correct lengths and straight edges on each side.
  3. Gluing pieces together to form one cohesive piece.
  4. Fixing any imperfections in the wood.
  5. Sanding multiple times for a smooth finish.
  6. Staining and then coating with multiple layers of protective coating.


We use high-quality cabinet-grade plywood to hand-make each drawer individually, facing each drawer with the same species of wood your top is made from. This ensures your piece comes together seamlessly, equipped with high-quality ball-bearing drawer glides.

Assembly and Shipping

Final Assembly: John and Liza ensure everything fits together perfectly.

Custom Pallets: Skeeter determines the size pallet needed for your piece, builds it herself, and along with Liza, ensures your piece is wrapped up tightly and protected for its journey.

Shipping: Once secured to a pallet, we load your piece onto a freight truck. Nicole will then send you all the tracking

From beginning to end, our four sets of hands are on every single aspect of your build. We love the flexibility it provides you, the customer.
