Why Choose Wood?

These days building and household items can be manufactured from a wide range of materials. Of course, here at Designer Woodworks we favour timber. The natural world is full of awe-inspiring wonders, but modern life has left many of us increasingly disconnected from this world. We feel the character and colours of our beautiful, locally sourced timbers helps to reconnect us and reinforce our appreciation for nature. But wood also has many benefits.
