Roble is a durable hardwood originally from Bolivia, naturally rich in oil and resins, it is a fast growing timber which can be harvested within 18-20 years of planting. Roble forests are 11 times more productive on a per hectare per year basis when compared to other forests, which may take 80-100 years or more to mature. Roble has a distinct yellowish colour with subtle hints of rich pinks through its interlocking grain. It is a strong hardwood with similar qualities to Teak, having excellent machining properties and a resistance to weather lasting 25 years making it ideal for furniture purposes. Our FSC certified roble timber is sourced from a responsibly managed forest in Bolivia, FSC forests are far more productive compared to unmanaged forests. Unmanaged forests can be cleared of all vegetation and trees, resulting in negative effects on the wildlife, habitats and indigenous people. FSC certified managed forests prevent this from happening by planting and harvesting responsibly. If left untreated roble will mellow down to a silver grey appearance, it can be treated with timber treatment plus, sealer or protector.
Your furniture can be cleaned using soapy water and a stiff brush, allowing it to dry fully before the application of any timber treatment.

The ceramic plaque represents a radically new and exclusive process which recreates any photograph three dimensionally. The edges taper to an approximate 2mm from a central height of 7mm. The World's first ceramic photograph is classical, elegant and tactile. The image will not deteriorate; it is a vitrified body that is protected against all weather and conditions, including frost. For each commission two plaques are supplied (one is fitted to your bench). Subsequent ceramics from the original moulds can be supplied quite easily and are priced accordingly. The ceramic photograph will be glued into a routed recess on the top rail free of charge. When you place your order please email us a high resolution photograph or alternatively post it so we can professionally scan the picture for the process and have it returned together with end product. Please allow 28 days for delivery. Click here to find our more
