All of our reclaimed timbers are locally sourced, and have a wide variety of past lives. Our softwood timbers are all sanded and treated in our workshop, to achieve a smooth finish. But they will be left with their splits, scratches and scrapes – retaining their industrial, rustic aesthetic and the stories of their past.
As the solid wood we use is a live, natural material, over time some of the products may experience slight movement of some degree. This is just a sign of the wood acclimatising to its new environment and settling in! In most cases it will require a very light sanding, followed by a recoat of wax or varnish.
All of our items are constructed using a Mild Steel. delivered to us by a local supplier.
We cut, drill, clean & weld (and clean again!) every single component by hand in our workshop.
Our Raw Steel items are left untreated, exposing their original rustic colouring, giving a really industrial aesthetic. This is easily maintained with a coating of WD40 every few months.
We also offer a Matt Black option (or any other colour of your choosing!) which will offer the steel sufficient protection against every day wear and tear.
Our items are finished with what we believe to be the best possible products available. We offer the choice of either a range of Osmo PolyX tints, or a Fiddes Hard Wax, depending on which piece you purchase.
If you have any questions on either product, or the colour you wish to have isn’t available on your item – just ask, and we can arrange exactly what you’re looking for.
