TIMBER SELECTION PROCESS
The first step in creating our signature hardwood bench seats involves felling a selected tree. The log is the cut into slabs of different sizes where the tree is felled.
The second step is to transport the cut slabs back to the work site, where the timber is stacked and battened to dry.
Your timber is then selected from the dried stacks for milling into your requested furniture piece. Your timber is then planed by an overhead router then sanded all over with dry sand paper 7 times starting at 40 grit (a very coarse sand paper) and working our way up to a 400 grit (a finer sand paper) We lovingly sand your timber to eradicate any little imperfections making it smooth and perfect for oiling.
Our first coat of tongue oil is then applied to the timber and left for 24 hours to be absorbed. Sanding of your slab in is the commenced again using 500 grit wet and dry sand paper. The process of sanding and oiling is then repeated another 7 times.
A natural resin forms over the wood which is then rubbed into the timber to provide a smooth and protective finish.
It may seem a lengthy process, however the final result is an amazing refined glass mirror finish which is smooth and soft. The natural beauty, smell and feel of the timber is preserved, so the soul of the tree is not lost.
BENCH SEAT SIZE
Bench seat sizes can range from small to very large. Some of our single timber slabs are mind blowing in dimension at 4m long and 1.6m wide. Each hardwood bench seat is made from a single slab of timber.
