Process

Wood furniture processing is a defined process where each step is executed with proper care. Wood furniture processing is a long process which starts with the identification of right kind of wood and ends with the final polishing of furniture. Let’s discuss all the steps involved in wood furniture processing:

The very first step of wood furniture processing is to identify the suitable type of wood. Next step is to select the suitable wood which is needed for furniture manufacturing. There are various types of woods available in market but each has different attribute. Select the one which is in accordance to requirement of furniture structure, climate etc.

Once, right kind of wood has been selected then its time to cut that in needed sizes and shapes. The adequate cutting of wood plays a vital role in wood furniture processing.

Cut parts of woods are now processed with specialized machines and equipments. These machines remove the unfinished edges of wood parts.

carving

Captivating carving of wood furniture attracts everyone. The machine-processed wood parts are now carved by expert craftsmen.

finishing

At this stage ready furniture is finished with coats of specialized lacquer. Various types of varnishes are used to give a glossy look to furniture.

Pressure processes

01

Pressure processes are the most permanent method around today in preserving timber life. Pressure processes are those in which the treatment is carried out in closed cylinders with applied pressure and/or vacuum. These processes have a number of advantages over the non-pressure methods. In most cases, a deeper and more uniform penetration and a higher absorption of preservative is achieved. Another advantage is that the treating conditions can be controlled so that retention and penetration can be varied.

02

These pressure processes can be adapted to large-scale production. The high initial costs for equipment and the energy costs are the biggest disadvantages. These treatment methods are used to protect ties, poles and structural timbers and find use throughout the world today. The various pressure processes that are used today differ in details, but the general method is in all cases the same. The treatment is carried out in cylinders.

03

The timbers are loaded onto special tram cars, so called buggies or bogies, and into the cylinder. These cylinders are then set under pressure often with the addition of higher temperature. As final treatment, a vacuum is frequently used to extract excess preservatives. These cycles can be repeated to achieve better penetration. LOSP treatments often use a vacuum impregnation process. This is possible because of the lower viscosity of the white-spirit carrier used.

04

Chemical Treatment Timber or lumber that is treated with a preservative generally have it applied through vacuum and/or pressure treatment. The preservatives used to pressure-treat timber are classified as pesticides. Treating timber provides long-term resistance to organisms that cause deterioration. If it is applied correctly, it extends the productive life of timber by five to ten times. If left untreated, wood that is exposed to moisture or soil for sustained periods of time will become weakened by various types of fungi, bacteria or insects
