Every Tree has it´s Story
Often Wikner’s craftsman knows about the tree’s history because they almost always followed it from its plantation. Perhaps you would like to use a tree from your backyard or a care tree that you followed through life. The woodworker gets acquainted with the tree to get its history, but above all to be able to cut it right in front of the processing.
Sawing Very Large Volumnuos Trees
The craftsmen at Wikners have their own self-designed mobile saw for so called overgrown timber. A prerequisite for being able to saw the gold of the forest, the overgrown timber in the way that has became special to Persåsen. The alternative to the tall overgrown trees is usually for them to become chips (used for heating) or newspaper pulp. Now, the old fir can instead be turned into a beautiful furniture and placed in an honorary center of your home.
Bark Separation with Water
A difficult challenge is to damage the tree as little as possible when the bark is separated from the wood core. The Wikners craftsmen always try to keep the natural shapes of the wood, which gives furniture from Persåsen a special character. A prerequisite for achieving the lubricity of the surface, characteristic of the products from Persåsen, is this bark separation. The trick is done by adding pure water.
Vacuum Drying the Wood
The most difficult moment in the process of making furniture is the drying of the wood. The wood is put in vacuum combined with heat. A method which takes a lot of work, but effective for avoiding cracking in the wood.
Crafts and Passion
Now we got the carefully selected and dried wood and then the craft takes on, with the passion, the eye, the feeling, the hand and the technology in perfect timing. Each product is unique, often tailor-made to fit for a special customer in shape and dimensions.
Nature, art and craft in harmony.
