The use of Timber in Wet Environments...

Timber and water aren't necessarily terms that gel... as a builder / carpenter, water [and wet areas in general] are often considered an enemy, especially to wood.

Our approach to the baths, basins and even the vanities we create is however, influenced from a boat building perspective... wood [obviously] being used with water in this respect for thousands of years.

It is with the aid of careful design, meticulous selection of materials and the utilisation of select [high-end] marine bonding agents and sealants that we can achieve a timber piece that will last without intrusive ongoing maintenance. 

We have been “torture testing” our timber basins & vanities with [repeated cycles of] boiling and freezing water, full-sun exposure and outdoor use to ensure a long lasting and safe product, all whilst employing eco (and health) safe components.

We are proud of the products we create, pouring passion into every vanity, bath and basin that leaves the workshop.
