We offer solid timber options that can be used across all of our products.
Solid timber is fantastic as it ages well and can easily be maintained over the years, over time we have come to appreciate the honesty of the material as it doesn't hide anything and therefore can be appreciated for what it is.
We encourage details such as knots, gum lines and grain details as this expresses the fact that the timber was once a tree with branches and now gets to be appreciated as this. That said, we do fill gaping holes and ensure the surface is free of any sharp points or places that could become unhygienic over time. In order to get this right we spend a lot of time training our staff on timber selection and how best to put the timber together.
As with most of our work we do offer a certain amount of customisation so let us know if you'd like to use a specific timber that we don't have in our range so we can source this for you.
In terms of timber finishes we use ProNature oils and a great water-based varnish by Harlequin - both made locally in Cape Town and environmentally sound.
