Quality and Guarantees

Unless otherwise specified, all timber we use is reclaimed pine scaffolding board from local scaffolding yards which has been deemed no longer suitable for use on building sites. The construction industry has very strict guidelines for scaffold boards, and these are replaced once they are a certain age or are not safe to be used on site. Happily this means we have a ready supply of seasoned boards with character. These boards would be sent to landfill if companies like mine did not make furniture with it, so it is a really eco-friendly raw material in that sense.

Our wood has character from its previous life, every board being unique in colour and wear and tear. Every board colours slightly differently to the next when treated with wax or other finishes.

The boards have varying degrees of wear and tear from their years spent on building sites. They have unique character, which responds well to the preparation we give them: we pressure wash them, dry thoroughly, before sanding, mindful of keeping the boards character intact, then finishing with a choice of stains, oils, waxes or varnishes to suit the piece’s use and the clients wishes.

Client’s furniture will have some of the following characteristics- saw marks, stains, paint, nail holes, metal banding, rust stains, knocks and dings (all the things that make them stand out as original reclaimed scaffolding boards)and natural curving and bowing in the wood.

We select each board to suit the end product and the environment it is to be used in, we may use more rustic boards for shelves than for a desk or table top that would be sanded to a smoother finish for writing on or eating from.

If you have a particular finish you would like please let me know before we start to make the piece of furniture.

Boards with more character (knocks, splits etc) can look stunning in the right setting.



Our aim is to deliver as quickly as possible and we use tried and tested couriers.


If you would like to purchase insurance at a small additional charge, please contact us and we will be happy to arrange it.

Packages normally arrive with no problems, but lost, stolen, or damaged mail can happen. We cannot accept responsibility for goods that are delayed due to circumstances beyond our control (transport strikes, extreme weather etc.) This is very rare but can happen occasionally and can interfere with our delivery schedule.
