Relevant Environmental issues I aim to cover;
What does it mean and should you always insist on it?
Is the planet always happier when wood is left in the form of a tree or can it be just as good (or better) if it becomes a table?
Is “local” always best when sourcing the raw materials for furniture?
Is it even possible to make high-quality furniture from reclaimed timber?
Tropical vs Temperate woods.
Is there such a thing as planet-friendly tropical timber? If not, should there be?
Solid vs Veneer and sheet materials.
Most people assume that solid is better than veneered. Why is this and are they correct?
How the above considerations affect my approach to sourcing and using materials.
