As a maker of beautiful furniture, WildWood Creations maintains a strict policy of timber recycling and sustainability. Most of our accent timbers are from fallen logs, often harvested after many years of lying unloved on the forest floor. Other timber is harvested from many different recycled sources; ranging from structural construction timber, to old wharf pylons, to country lamp posts.
It is amazing to our generation just how much gorgeous timber was used by our forbearers for the most mundane of purposes and a delight for us to give this heirloom material new and spectacular life. Note that much of the personality of these timbers emerges from their imperfections; the worm holes and once rotted voids, when properly treated, contribute significantly to their character. We will rarely try to minimise these features.
We do use other, sustainably harvested timbers for structural purposes, such as legs and braces.
