A natural material derived from trees, wood is a staple in stools, chairs, living room furniture, storage units, and table design. Generally, the wood that we use can be divided into two types: organic wood and engineered wood. While the former is a natural by-product of trees, the latter is formed from recycled wood and or other fibres. We produce solid wood models, wood veneers bonded to a wooden ply sub-straight, paper veneers bonded to an MDF sub-straight, as well as painted MDF (Medium Density Fibre Board).


Our solid wood products are kiln dried for the purpose of reaching the wood's equilibrium moisture content (EMC), without jeopardizing the strength and structural integrity of the wood product and resist shrinkage. Solid wood models are available in a range of finishes, from walnut, to light oak to dark wood, or can be painted or distressed for a distinctive look.
