There is something very special about a wooden construction
There is something very special about a wooden
construction. Be it a house, a
boat or a piece of furniture, wood can certainly present itself in very
different ways. It can look rough or untreated. It can shine with pride
from handcrafted surfaces, or it can amaze you with the exactness and
precision of modern manufacturing. It can be bent, laminated, cut and
joined. If done right, all this in ways that can communicate beauty.
Wood can be treated to show you its character, or surfaced to hide its
fibres behind layers of elegant lacquer. It is truly a living material.
But you have to treat it with respect.
This is second nature if, like Peter Åkeson at NC Furniture, you
are the second generation proprietor of a woodworking furniture business.
