This Timber is about as Green as you can get
Working with timber felled under strict controls and proudly sporting sustainability certifications, P.G.T. factories assure an attention to detail and quality of craftsmanship that has made this P.G.T. one of Furniture by Design's most trusted partners. Traditional furniture makers, joiners and cabinet makers would never use screws, staples and other fixings to hold their wooden masterpieces together. True craftsmen will always employ proper jointing methods to create seamless furniture that will not only look substantial but will also withstand the test of time and the wear and tear of family life. Those craftsmen are the inspiration behind every bench built item in our Post and Rail collection.
Most of P.G.T.'s wood is sourced from larch, pine, fir and assorted semi hardwoods reclaimed from discarded packing crates, pallets and dismantled buildings. After the wood has been collected and sorted, all nails and debris is removed by hand.
The recycled wood is kiln dried to exacting specifications, the off-cut timber being used to fuel the kilns and boilers. Strict control of moisture content ensures there will be no warping or splitting. Each product is assembled by hand and finely sanded. Original nail holes and imperfections are retained to enhance the character of the wood.
By using traditional joinery techniques we assure longevity. Hand brushing technique create a unique patina, colour and feeling of warmth. Some finishes take up to a year to research, test and perfect. The result is furniture which will add character and style to any home.
The PGT-RECLAIMED label provides customers with complete peace of mind.
