Quality100% solid oak furniture is what we supply in quality designs.
All our furniture is manufactured from North American grade A white oak the finest timbers of oak in the world.
All our timbers are fully seasoned and kiln dried.
Kiln Drying is a standard practice in wood production mills and serves to efficiently bring green lumber moisture levels down to “workable” range–moisture content levels that will not end in the myriad of problems that can be caused by excess moisture levels in wood.
These problems include warping and twisting in dimensional lumber, binding or kicking during machining, buckling or crowning in an installed wood floor, and adhesive failures in finished products.
Moisture-related problems can cost millions of pounds in damages each year. Kiln drying is a first step in bringing all wood products to moisture content levels that will be subject to minimal moisture-related damage.
What Is Kiln-Dried Wood?
Kiln-dried wood is wood that has been dried in an oven (kiln). With a kiln, you can control the environment such as temperature, humidity, and steam levels for a set period of time. Allowing you to dry wood to the desired moisture content.
All our furniture is 100% solid oak and that includes the drawer bases and backs to all units as well as all the internals such as drawer boxes.
All our drawers are fully dovetail jointed too.
All our furniture is finished in a matt lacquer that seals the timbers further.
This is especially important for countries like Spain, France & Portugal that have hot climates.
Never purchase wax finished furniture for a warm climate, the wax will dry out quickly and leave the timbers open to warping, splitting and cracking.
Having your timbers, seasoned then kiln dried followed by a matt lacquer finish will prevent the above.
Unfortunately over the last few years as the oak furniture market in UK especially has become so competitive its seen many traits being used to lessen the quality of the product in an attempt to drive down the price.
