How do I receive my freight shipment?
Please make sure you have help to bring your crate inside. Your LTL Freight shipment will be secured in a crate with protective packaging, and high-grade straps to help prevent damage during transit. The shipment will arrive on a semi-truck.The semi-truck will have a lift-gate, if requested, to bring the pallet to ground level. Be sure to inspect for damage or shortage with extra scrutiny.
Please note: When you sign the driver’s delivery receipt, you are acknowledging receipt of all products in good order. Before signing the delivery receipt, it is important that you follow the procedures outlined below:
- Inspect the boxes and their contents for visible damage. If any damage is suspected, OPEN the boxes carefully for further inspection.

How do I care for my purchase?
1. Dusting - Do not avoid dusting furniture. Frequent dusting removes airbourne deposits that build up in a filmy layer and can scratch the surface. Clean, dry, soft cloths or feather dusters will effectively remove dust; however, to avoid scattering the dust into the air, where it floats until landing back on furniture surfaces, dampen the cloth very slightly.
2. Cleaning - Never use all-purpose cleaning sprays unless your furniture has a plastic coating, such as the kind used on kitchen tables and children's furniture.You'll usually want to avoid cleaning wood with water. However, sticky spots may need to be treated with soap and water. Here's how: dip the cloth in mild soap or detergent dissolved in water, wring the cloth nearly dry, and wipe the area. Rinse and immediately dry with a clean, soft cloth.
3. Maintenience and Deep Cleaning - As a first step to removing layers of grime, use soap and water. Rinse and dry well. If the finish still seems dirty, clean lightly with #0000 steel wool dipped in a mild soapy mixture. Do not use mixtures containing boiled linseed oil, turpentine, or white vinegars. Do not use Windex or All-Purpose cleaners. Museum conservators say these things darken wood and attract dust and lint. To maintain and moisturize your wood furniture we recommend using Howard's Feed and Wax once a year as needed.
What can I do to repair scratches?
If the top of wood furniture is slightly scratched, apply Howard's Feed & Wax and buff area or if the scratches show a color change use a felt-tip touch-up pen and lightly buff area after dry.
To treat deeper scratches that gouge into the wood, use wood filler or a colored filler wax stick available at hardware stores. Match as closely as possible to the color of your piece, applying in several thin layers rather than in one thick layer. This should blend well into the area.
What if my table is unstable?
Please check under your table first and make sure all screws are secure connecting the top to the legs or base. If the legs or base is having issues at the floor we recommend purchasing felt levelers at a hardware store and following directions until table has a solid floor connection. BRWW is not responsible for getting your table level on your floor.
How many chairs fit around a 6ft-10ft table?
Use these charts to determine how many people can comfortably fit at the table. Charts include extended width seating.

What happens if my furniture is damaged in transit?
Please contact us immediately and do not sign for your order, once your order is accepted this indicates you accepted the order in proper condition.
