Wood is at the heart of WEWOOD furniture and we take great care over our sourcing and selection of timber.
Taking oak and walnut from naturally regenerative forests from French and North American suppliers, the wood is sawn into planks at their mills, before being air and kiln dried in a carefully controlled process, taking double the time of most of their competitors. Kiln drying reduces the moisture content of the timber to ambient levels, thereby reducing future movement of the timber, providing a more stable product.
When we receive the wood at our factory, we carefully select and match the timber to give an attractive and consistent appearance to the finished board.
After cutting and gluing process, the wood pannel is converted into specific parts for the piece of furniture, using our CNC machines.
During assembly the furniture is again sanded to remove any imperfections and this again happens during the finishing process, when linseed oil and a protective water based lacquer is applied.
Finally, each piece of furniture is finished using wire wool and is hand waxed and polished to provide the finished article.
Working in real wood makes each piece of furniture unique, since the patterns and grains in the timber will be different for each piece.
