Our new beached timber
range is proving to be the Lemon Drizzle of all finishes:
everybody wants a piece!
These beauties start life as a pile of reclaimed fir (pictured
above) that's salvaged from old buildings. It gives us a lovely,
lived-in wood that's full of character.
Having spent the last 100 years or so collecting moisture, the
wood is first dried at 60°C for several days. Then it's shaped,
sealed, sanded, rubbed with grey paint, scoured and sand-blasted to
achieve a beautiful 'beached' effect.
So there you have it. Hundreds of years, hours of love and one
pretty cracking finish. Enjoy!
