Timber

Timber is at the heart of everything that we do and not any timber shall do. We source our raw material from many sources to ensure the raw material is the best available in the marketplace. We use both Scottish homegrown timber and imported timber. Both timber sources offer benefits and each species is unique allowing us to create bespoke pieces of timber furniture. 

Abodo

Supplied by Glenalmond timber in Scotland, Abodo Vulcan is a hard yet lightweight fine finishing timber with enhanced stability and performance.

Radiata Pine is sourced from rapidly renewable  FSC®  certified plantation forests in New Zealand to create the modified Abodo Vulcan timber. 

The excellent weatherability and durability of Abodo Vulcan makes it a perfect choice for timber architecture.
