Solid wood is a valuable and versatile gift from nature that can enhance the aesthetic of your home or office interior. We only use wood sourced from sustainable forestry to manufacture your personalized custom-made furniture piece. This ensures you receive a bespoke item that is both lovingly handcrafted and ethically produced. Here we outline everything you need to know about the production of our materials and the special features of our solid woods!

How we manufacture solid wood panels

Due to its structural qualities and characteristicssolid wood is particularly well suited for furniture production. Solid, robust and versatile, it is the perfect material for our expert carpenters to use to create beautiful made-to-measure solid wood furniture. Before the wood can be transformed from a tree into a custom-made product, it must first be processed into solid wood panels. We minimize waste to ensure the entire tree species is used to manufacture our panels. Depending on the wood species, our solid panels can look very different. Some panels maintain a continuous appearance, whilst others are pieced together lengthways. These differences in species, appearance and manufacturing are also reflected in our price points.  

Patchwork slats:

Patchwork solid wood panels are the right choice if want an exciting, eye-catching look. With this production method, short wooden layers are joined together using finger-jointing and glue. The multiple parts create an intriguing aesthetic. Of course, during production, care is taken to ensure that the parts fit perfectly together and do not vary too much in terms of colour tones and grain. Patchwork gluing is our cheaper variant of solid wood panels, as the use of smaller wooden parts results in less waste. Patchwork panels are also very stable, as the short lamellas mean that there is little risk of warping.

Continuous slats:

Continuous slats are recommended if you prefer a subtle look with the furniture piece appearing as if it were made from a continuous wooden panel. With continuous gluing, also called "stick gluing", continuous wooden lamellas are glued together. Special attention is paid to the harmonious interplay of the individual slats. The colour transitions and matching grains create a calm and homogeneous presence. Due to the exclusive use of long slats, solid wood panels with continuous gluing are somewhat more cost-intensive and slightly less environmentally friendly.

Pine is the second most common tree species in Central Europe and makes up about 25 per cent of all European forestry. It is a coniferous wood and has a distinctive tree sap odour when freshly cut. It is light in colour with a yellowish-white to reddish-white shimmer. Over time and with strong incidences of light, the wood darkens and can appear yellowish-brown. Pine has a strong structure and makes custom-made furniture appear lively and durable. The annual rings of the tree and the resin channels are usually clearly visible. These natural elements can also have irregularities such as knotholes, which gives the wood an individual look. The wood's material properties make it one of the most popular woods in the furniture industry. Pine is soft, flexible and light. It also has a high load-bearing capacity and is therefore very durable. Since pine grows very quickly and in large numbers it is very accessible and easy to work with. The wood is celebrated for its all-round qualities and is a great inexpensive option.

The light colour of the wood shimmers white to yellowish and has a beautiful texture. The ring-pore structure of the wood is popular and in demand. Ash is more difficult to work with than other woods because it is hard and heavy and difficult to cut. However, due to its high flexibility, it is also still very well suited for furniture construction. Custom-made furniture made produced from ash is very robust, resistant to wear and tear and impresses with a grandiose look.

The annual rings are still easily recognizable and give the wood its elegant appearance, while the wood darkens significantly when exposed to light. Cherry can be found in large parts of Central Europe and is used here exclusively for interior fittings and furniture construction. Ceilings, wall coverings, veneers and custom-made furniture are made from the wood type. Its precious qualities make it is easy to work with, it permeates a pleasant scent when cut and is robust and enduring.

Our walnut charms with its beauty and appeal and is sourced from American forestry. As an expensive and precious wood material, it is exclusively found in upscale furniture. It has a rich, dark brown to black-purple hue and the sapwood is grey-brown to light-yellow. It is common that the wood's fibres run straight, which leads to a pleasing aesthetic. The structure is quite coarse but very even and the annual rings are very distinctive. In contrast to the European walnut, the American walnut is somewhat more uniform and darker in colour and is therefore very popular in the furniture industry. Walnut can be processed very well and the wood is dependable if properly treated.
