|3. Select one of your initial ideas and develop it further, so that it meets the ‘coffee table’ design need. Use a combination of notes and sketches.|
Solid beech is steamed for several hours. When taken out of the steam chamber, it is possible to ‘bend’ the wood so that it fits the shape of a jig. After at least twenty hours, the ‘bentwood’ is removed and remains in its new shape.
The same technique is used to form the other bentwood parts.
|This design of table is environmentally friendly, as the materials are sourced sustainable sources, whereby a tree is planted for everyone that is felled and processed.
The table will be available as a flat pack and in a range of finishes (stained / varnish).
