SSL is the Secure Sockets Layer protocol used to encrypt data input for online purchases or other private information,
SSL was designed to provide security between client and server and to avoid any kind of 3-way
man-in-the middle attack. Thus, SSL cannot be proxied through traditional application level
fire walls because SSL considers a proxy server to be a middleman.
In SSL Tunneling, the client initiates an SSL connection via normal HTTP then handshakes
(two machines talking) and creates a secure connection to the server via a byte-forwarding
tunnel. The proxy has access to the client-proxy request headers, but the session is encrypted.
Once the handshake occurs, the proxy acts just like a SOCKS gateway. This allows the fire
wall to monitor the requests, but not the traffic. You now have the security to shop online.
Why should you buy our product?
You have many choices today as far as wood items are concerned. Few of those choices are for American-made, handcrafted items.
Approximately $5B worth of wood products were imported and sold in this country last year. Some $2B worth of those wood products
were sold by American companies that do no importing. It shows in the stores.
Your choices are few. What you see is what you get. Many of our stock items are distinctive in that you won't see them everywhere.
Because of the fact that they are handcrafted and not mass produced, almost every item has some distinct difference. Custom sizes and
design changes are readily available. Our products are quality-made so that you can expect durability. All of our items are finished
both on the outside and the inside. We back our items, even the small, non-furniture items.
If I purchase an unfinished item, do I need to do any additional preparation?
All of our unfinished items come prepared for finishing. You may need to wipe it down with a tack cloth since it does come from a very, dusty shop.
Is there any special care required for your items?
All of our unfinished items must be treated or finished in some manner since the wood will ultimately dry out. To keep its natural beauty, any oil finish, such as tung oil or lemon oil, may be used. Otherwise, staining, varnishing, or painting are recommended.
