Firstly a great deal of care and affection! Using a combination of high grade oak and composite panels both of which are sourced from UK manufacturers of which at least 70% of the timber content is FSC certified. Time honoured techniques are then applied by our skilled craftsmen to create a solid well made piece of furniture that your children will be able to use for many, many years.
For furniture items that are part of our Butterfly, Daisy, Boat or Car designs we hand cast the plant ons and apply them individually to each furniture item.
Where relevant all drawer sides, backs and bases are constructed from 18mm composite panels which are dovetail jointed and painted inside and out. The drawers open and close on a wood to wood mechanism and drawer stops are applied as standard.
Every board, post and knob is sanded by hand and passed through our workshop. Whereupon we apply a highly durable and hard wearing painted finish with a 20% sheen (ie egg shell). The surfaces are a smooth pristine finish that can easily be wiped down and are resistant to everyday wear and tear.
After some careful checking it's wrapped by hand before making its way to its new home.
