Machining of block walls

In the country of origin we inspect the wood. If the block walls are of good quality, we bring them to the Netherlands. We process them into semi-finished products. This means that the planks are ready to be used to make furniture or other products.

There are several ways to work the wood:

- Brushing removes dirt and nails and gives you a tough, understated look
- By planing you get a smooth board with beautiful markings
- Buying unprocessed is also possible.
