Manufacturing timber furniture is an elaborate process designed to produce high-quality furniture each time. The process starts with design and material sourcing, all the way to a finished product. Some of the main steps of the timber furniture manufacturing process are highlighted below.

Material Preparation

This includes sourcing and sorting out the timber that will be used to make the furniture. Sorting is done to ensure only high-quality timber is used. The criteria used usually include the type of timber, size, and moisture content, among others.

Wood Cutting

The next step involves the cutting of the timber into the various required sizes for making the desired pieces of furniture. The cut pieces are then taken to a moulding section where they are processed into different shapes and sizes required for manufacturing.

Seasoning

The seasoning step is where timber is curated to ensure that it will last long. Various chemicals are used to protect the timber from insects, such as termites. The chemicals may also help make the timber weatherproof, which means the outdoor furniture made from the timber will not rot.

Assembly

With all the pieces ready, the next step will be joining them together to form the required piece of furniture. The method used for joining may vary among different manufacturers, with some using screws, staples, nails, or glue, among others. Everything then undergoes inspection and repairs and trimming are done whenever necessary.

Protective Coating and Colouring

A final protective coating, such as varnish, is then applied to the furniture to ensure durability and give a glossy finish. For some, the furniture may be painted before the varnish is applied to provide the furniture with the desired colour.

Final Inspection

All furniture made has to undergo a final examination before being released into the market. The inspection is done to ensure nothing is missing and to appraise the finish of the product.
