ROBUST FURNITURE MADE OF SCAFFOLDING WOOD
Do you want a piece of furniture with a natural and robust look? Then scaffolding wood is very suitable as a basic material!
Scaffolding wood furniture is characterized by:
# Solid material
# Robust appearance
# For indoor and outdoor
# Various finishing options
Scaffolding wood is sawn from a fast-growing type of pine (spruce). This gives it very long and flexible fibres. The logs are sawn into planks with a thickness of approximately 32 mm and a width of 200 mm.
The "splintering" of scaffolding wood
Due to the long fiber, this scaffolding wood does not easily create splinters. If splinters do form, they are quite soft and easy to remove. The scaffolding parts are also dried and finely sawn. After a piece of furniture has been made and sanded from this wood, you have a sturdy and functional usable furniture.
Treating the wood
Used scaffolding parts have always been exposed to weather influences and are, as it were, "impregnated" in a natural way by lime, cement and paint residues. Furniture made from new scaffolding wood "works" more like furniture from used scaffolding wood that has already been worked out. This can cause some cracks and seams here and there, which is not out of place with a robust and tough appearance! If not treated, the furniture will age over time. Treatment is therefore not necessary, but it is recommended.
Oils, for example white wesh oil, linseed oil for a nice deep shine
Stain various colours
Lacquer transparent or, for example, wenge or oak.
Indoor use of scaffolding wood
Scaffolding wood is also excellent for indoor use. Cabinets, dressers, dining areas, chairs, coffee tables, computer furniture / desks, sofas, beds, children's rooms, etc! When used indoors, the scaffolding wood will work a bit more due to the low humidity/dryness. As a result, seams and shrinkage cracks can occur, in my opinion, the furniture only becomes more beautiful.
In addition, the material can of course be used for terraces on the beach or on the water.
In short, scaffolding wood is a sustainable contemporary trend that certainly appeals to many people through the reuse of old scaffolding parts.
