At District Furniture we create only the finest, highest quality and environmentally conscious furniture. So you can rest assured that when you commission us to design and make your dream piece of hand made furniture, that’s exactly what you will get.
Once we have finalised the design for your new custom piece we can walk you through material options and finishes. We use high quality re-claimed solid timbers with options for metal frames. We hand select all the timbers from the timber yard then take them back to our workshop for processing. We firstly machine and thickness the timbers down to exact dimensions. Once the timbers are the correct thickness we can then start to lay them up and work out the most beautiful configuration for your custom hand-built furniture.
“A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation.”Yvon Chouinard, founder Patagonia
The timbers are then jointed using a contemporary and extremely strong variation on a mortise and tenon joint. They are dry fit to ensure they all fit correctly, then they are glued and clamped into position and left overnight to cure.
The timber for your unique, bespoke furniture is now laminated and ready to trim to exact length and add any edge detail. The entire piece is sanded and then your choice of finish is applied. Whatever the design or material our experienced team ensure you will love you new bespoke hand made bespoke piece of furniture for many many years to come.
With a wide variety of timbers, finishes and of course our unlimited design offering, the world really is your oyster. Why not get in touch and see how we can bring your ideas to life for your dream custom hand made bespoke furniture.
