Doing Our Bit For Responsible Manufacturing

Since trees are a key source to sustaining the well-being of this planet, we researched in-depth to ensure that our raw timber yards were full of only sustainably-sourced timber from properly managed and maintained forests.

FSC Saw Mill

Not only does this mean a greener form of manufacturing right from the start since every tree will be replanted, it also results in a better managed supply chain that produces only the finest furniture grade wood for our wood worktops and bespoke tables.

If you want the best out of your wooden worktop it is vital to treat it with care. There are plenty of ways to look after your worktop, depending on the finishing you wish to achieve. Here at Mountain Hardwoods, we offer a pre-installation oiling. In our workshops we use a large tank of oil, linseed oil.

Whether you have your worktop oiled by us is completely up to you. You don’t have to have to go through this process; we just recommend that you do. Once we have your order is in place, paid for and the workshops have finished creating your wooden worktop; if you have opted for the pre-installation oiling it will be placed into our dip tank for several hours. The tank is full of Linseed oil, which is extra pure, therefore it absorbs into the timber easier and much quicker. It also produces ultra low protein content, meaning that at warm temperatures it will absorb quicker and deeper than ordinary linseed oil.
