Review Me
Pitlochry, Perth & Kinross
We are an unpretentious and honest kitchen workshop, with mini-showroom, based in alluring Highland Perthshire. We make and install beautiful cabinets around Scotland and the UK, using birch plywood as the foundation for all our work. Our approach to cabinet making has been borne not only through many years of learning and experience but from the aim of creating the strongest furniture to endure several generations’ worth of wear and tear. We use advanced CNC machinery coupled with traditional hand finishing techniques to bring out the best in our materials and designs. Each part of the cabinet is precision cut by CNC machine which leaves no room for error. The cabinet is then assembled by hand using mortise and tenon joints, which have been used by woodworkers for thousands of years, primarily for their strength. This joint is then glued and screwed for maximum robustness and longevity. We like to expose our tenons, which is what you can see at the sides of our cabinets, we think they add to the character of our furniture. However if you would prefer them to be unseen this can be easily done. Every exposed plywood edge is sanded to a smooth finish and then polished with wax which beautifully brings out the dimensions of the stacked plywood layers. Adding colour and character: We love colour. Both muted and bright tones will add spirit, vibrancy, warmth and personality to your cabinets and to your room. Adding colour to your Birkwood kitchen is executed in one of two very different ways: Laminate When brought together, solid birch plywood and laminate brings a combination of a striking yet simple aesthetic, delivering a tough, practical and durable product with a unique and fully customisable colour scheme. The use of unadorned birch plywood forces the smallest detail to the forefront. Each joint becomes a decorative element in its own right and the choice of placement of a hand notch can contribute significantly to the character of the cabinet. By using several colours in a run of cabinets you need not commit an entire room to a single colour or pattern. One thing is guaranteed – no-one will have a kitchen quite like yours. Hand-painting “Painted by a person rather than a machine”, this dictionary definition sums this process up. Visible brush strokes carry with them the resonance of tradition and craftsmanship; a hand-painted cabinet will have enduring appeal and stand the test of time.
