Custom Made Wood Furniture
There are few possessions that are as timeless and elegant as wood furniture. Moreover, the different styles of timber derived from different types of trees creates a color palette that cannot really be matched anywhere else in nature. While timber has most commonly been used in home construction and flooring, it is also a great alternative for furniture and other functional elements in the home. One room in particular that really seems to benefit from the addition of wood is the kitchen, which may explain why wood furniture and elements are becoming a popular addition to that particular space.
Recycled slab timber is especially desired for a number of different reasons. The most obvious reason for going with a wooden timber furniture addition in the kitchen is the way that it looks. One great example is a kitchen table where the whole family can gather and dine. The beautiful polished surface of this type of table makes it shine as brightly as the appliances that surround it in the kitchen. That shine lasts an incredibly long time, making slab timber an investment that will continue to deliver over an extended period of time. Our image gallery has lots of examples.
Another use for wooden timber is as a countertop in the kitchen. Harder woods can withstand all kinds of abuse, whilst still maintaining a stunning look that is as dramatic as granite. The natural look is a lot more impressive than veneer, and will also maintain its good looks over time, unlike its coated competitor. Of course, you can always choose to check out the beauty of this wood style on a smaller scale by going with a slab timber cutting board first. Once you get an idea of how aesthetically pleasing and functional this item is, you will be sure to be sold on bigger slab timber furniture pieces. Fab Slabs Sunshine Coast has everything you need.
The type of slab timber that you choose is important, especially when you are looking to have a piece that is durable. As such, kiln dried slabs are preferred to those that are air dried. The kiln process will not only create a sturdier piece, it will also kill of any little mites or growths that may still be making a home in the original timber. What you are left with is a stunning looking piece of slab timber that will serve you well for many, many years to come.
Another great benefit of slab timber furniture Brisbane goes back to something that we mentioned at the start of this piece. A variety of different wood are used to create the furniture, with the likes of Blue Gum, Blackbutt, Camphour Laurel, Lemon Scented Gum all used to create a specific look. Different treatments can be given to those woods to create a hue that is a perfect complement for your existing kitchen design. It also creates a number of different price points so that you can easily find a material and finish that fits snugly within your budget.
