Timber Finishes

  • We manufacture all our indoor furniture in solid Ash timber, sourced from sustainably managed forests. 
  • We manufacture all our outdoor furniture in solid Iroko timber, due to it's durability in outdoor conditions.  The timber is sourced from sustainably managed forests in Africa and is tough, dense, strong and resistant to decay. From the outset it appears to be a yellow-brown to honey-brown in colour with a straight grain.  Colour variation is to be expected initially. If one chooses not to maintain their timber furniture it will gradually change and lighten in colour depending on its exposure to the outdoor elements, thus, eventually weathering to a silver-grey patina. When the timber weathers, slight surface cracking is expected as the timber is ‘drying out’. This is a purely natural outcome and should not be considered as a structural defect. 
  • 11 Standard timber finishes are available for our indoor furniture, at no extra cost.
  • Our tints specialist can accommodate custom tints or solid colours on large production runs, with quotes based on a wood sample of the tint or solid colour.
  • Indoor Table tops are made with ash veneers and solid ash timber edging which can be stained to match the solid timber frame and chairs.
  • The children’s table has an MDF table top for better wearability. Therefore these tops (and chair seats) are only available in solid colours.

Upholstery

  • Fabric is not included in the product price.
  • Clients are welcome to supply their own fabric or specify a fabric for Woodbender to quote on and order on their behalf.
  • Fabric meterage specifications apply to plain fabrics that are single width (140cm wide).
  • Please note that allowances must be made for fabrics with pattern repeats, railroading or a directional pile.
  • Specified fabric meterage is calculated for a single unit; orders for multiple units may result in a different cutting efficiency and reduce the amount of fabric required.
  • All furniture frames are manufactured in solid timber and are securely fastened with screws and carriage bolts.
  • High-density foam is used on all upholstered items.

Maintenance

INDOOR FURNITURE 

  • Woodbender solid Ash furniture is designed exclusively for indoor use. Avoid exposure to direct sunlight and moisture.
  • Use a damp cloth to wipe down the wood on your furniture.
  • Do not use any chemical-based cleaning products on the wood.
  • Refer to your chosen fabric's care instructions when cleaning the upholstery fabric on your furniture.

OUTDOOR FURNITURE

  • Woodbender outdoor furniture has been treated with an outdoor oil (which has a built-in UV blocker, slowing down discolouration of the wood) prior to leaving the factory.
  • It is the owner’s choice/responsibility whether they would like to maintain the beauty and colour of the timber or whether they would like it to weather and age.
  • The maintenance required will depend on the level of exposure to the outdoor elements.
  • Download our Maintenance & Care guide for more information on how to maintain your outdoor furniture.
