Our Timber BEDS, BUNKS, TRUNDLES, SOFAS, COTS, BED SIDE TABLES and OTHER FURNITURE are made specially for us by master craftsmen in South Gippsland, using Victorian Ash and some Tasmanian oak; both being a eucalypt and obtained from managed plantations.
NO Harmful Finishes, NO MDF, NO Chipboard, NO Chemical Paint, NO Fumigation and NO Toxic Glues are used during any part of the manufacturing process.
Organature uses AG Brown Sawmill timber as they are, and from our experience always have been, conscious of the importance of sustainability and source only from sustainably managed forests.
They are ‘Chain of Custody Certified’ by Responsible Wood and previous to this organisation, Browns was certified under the Forest Stewardship Council. This certification tracks the process and is inclusive of the source of timber from sustainably managed forests.
Natural Timber is a hygroscopic material (which means it absorbs and expels water from its surrounding environment). This process is known as thermal expansion and can cause warping, swelling and potentially shrinkage. Generally trees have evolved to be resistant to this and can typically take temperature changes within their stride. Although all our timber is kiln dried, and therefore has gone through most of this process already, thermal expansion can still naturally occur. It is due to these natural occurrences that we do not use any glue, (including our non toxic glue) on these products to allow for the further contraction and expansion of the timber.
Being a 100% natural timber, it will also have interesting knots, lines, grains and irregularities. This is the nature of timber. Although we do our best to match timbers as closely as possible, we cannot guarantee these irregularities will not show up. The plant based oils we use often blend these irregularities out and add extra character, which is unique with each item. The oils can have a slight odour that dissipates quite quickly.
Choose raw and sanded, or with non-toxic natural plant and mineral based oil in several colours. Minimal PVA glue used in joints, dries rock hard between timbers, no out-gassing. Decorative bolts included, special key supplied and components are numbered for ease of assembly. Slats are NOT oiled or painted.
Suitable for futons and innerspring mattresses. Slats are supplied as three panels, providing a stable base for the mattress. Please Note: platform height is from floor to top of platform. Clearance under can vary with frame timbers used. Platform heights are noted with each design. Bed Bases are supplied flat packed. Our beds are not made for mattresses to sit inside a lip, so when constructing ensure the side frames of the bed are used with the small space facing up towards the ceiling.
Timber contracts and expands during different atmospheric conditions and as result sometimes squeaking may occur. If this happens, we recommend a very small amount of soap or Vaseline between the frame and slats.
Do not place solid bedheads, such as the one on Daylesford, in direct sunlight or near heaters.
