HAND MADE IN GREAT BRITAIN
FRAME: The frame is carefully constructed using kiln-dried hardwood, this process of kiln drying removes all moisture from the wood, enabling it to retain its shape and stability to create a frame that lasts. The frame joints get special attention, they are glued, dowelled, and screwed, corners and seat rails are further strengthened by the addition of reinforcing blocks for increased support and strength. Shaped components of the frames are CNC (computer numerical control) cut from 23mm birch plywood to ensure all the frames are milled to the same exacting standards. Birch, when used in the construction of plywood benefits from reduced expansion and shrinkage, providing improved dimensional stability; Ideal for engineering and components requiring fine machinability or high strength to weight ratio, your hand-crafted furniture frame comes with a full ten-year structural guarantee
