We’re all extremely proud of our heritage and mix traditional and modern tools and materials as we work when we build your bespoke furniture.
As you’ll see from our About Us page, our skills and experience have been learned and developed in Europe and here in the UK.
We use three main materials to build our furniture. We do use others as and when necessary and are happy to incorporate special touches or requests if we can.
Medium density fibreboard (MDF):
MDF has many advantages over plank wood, particleboard, or high-density fiberboard. It’s very smooth because the wood fibers used in its manufacture are uniform and fine. This makes it have low “tear out,” which means that when sawed, the end has a smooth cut instead of a jagged edge.
This also means that a coat of primer and a couple of coats of paint take well, leaving an attractive, finished surface, unlike other composite wood products. MDF also has a mild reaction to moisture, meaning it won’t warp or swell in high-humidity applications like a bathroom cabinet.
Veneered MDF provides many of the advantages of MDF with a decorative wood veneer surface layer. In modern construction, spurred by the high costs of hardwoods, manufacturers have been adopting this approach to achieve a high-quality finishing wrap covering over a standard MDF board.
Melamine faced chipboard (MFC):
A decorative melamine foil is pre-bonded under pressure to both sides of a moisture resistant chipboard core. These panels made from virgin wood in the UK comprise our most comprehensive range of boards suitable for kitchen or bedroom projects.
There are over 150 different effects, colors and surface finishes to choose from which makes the melamine board suitable for a wide range of different purposes.
