Frequently Asked Questions

Some helpful tips and things to consider for making your custom piece for your business


At Hogbo, everything we do is custom. Each piece is created to your exact specifications. Products listed online act as guidelines for design style and possible options. You are encouraged to visit our showroom to see the various wood types, finishes, colors, build types, and get an idea of the right sizing you need.

Can I take home a sample?

Samples can be created and delivered for purchase only. Pack of 3 samples is $30. We need about 3-5 days to make samples and ship via UPS. Please give us a call and we can have one made up, but we suggest that our clients stop by our showroom to see them in person.

what is the difference between standard oil and varnish?

The oil/wax blend we recommend is a soft natural finish that shows off the beauty and characteristics of the wood grain while resisting liquid well, and your table can be cleaned with mild soap and water. The oil/wax finish requires several early reapplications within the first year, and every few months after the first year to better protect the table surface. Varnish creates a hard finish product that is resistant to scratches and dings and requires little maintenance.

do you do custom metalwork and bases?

Yes! We fabricate the metalwork right here in the shop, and we are happy to work with you to complete your custom table. You can pick out your metal base on our table leg styles page.

Can i send you a picture of something I would like made?

Absolutely. Let us know what your dream table looks like, and we’ll let you know right away if we can build it.

do you do digital renderings of custom designs?

Yes, digital renderings/sketches are available for your custom designs. If you have a design in mind that cannot quite be perceived in your head, we can have one of our talented graphic artists create a digital rendering of what your table, base, and materials may look like to help envision the concept. Please allow 1-3 days for turnaround.

can you match the color i want?

Yes. In order to color match the only information we need is the brand and name of stain you’d like. Custom stains and paints will incur a 15% surcharge to the order total. Simply give us a call to discuss how we can get the color sample here.

can i request a special measurment?

Absolutely. We are happy to accommodate custom requests if you don’t see the size you’re interested in on our website. Please send us an inquiry here and let us know about your project. We will get back to you as soon as possible! 

do you offer dealer, trade or designer discounts?

Yes, please see here for more information on our trade program.
