Grandpa’s Wood Workshop
The woodenart.gr corporation has been actively engaged in the manufacturing of wooden objects for several decades owing to the fact that we have been operating a traditional workshop which consistently proves to be meeting the high expectations of our clientele. We have acquired the most specialized expertise, extensive experience and the perfect tools to guarantee a three-fold key to success: quality, reliability and durability in our complete range of products.
The workshop premises are comprised of the essential machinery required for the creation of wooden items as well as dedicated craftsmen who love wood and are inspired by it thus creating unique products. The aim of our company is to sustain its high quality manufacturing, which results not only from the utilisation of specific wood categories but also from the manufacturing process itself, both of which entail basic reasons why our products surpass the quality of similar competitor items.
The forerunner and driving force behind our traditional workshop is Mr Ioannis D. Mbarsoukas, who is highly knowledgeable in his field of occupation and, despite being 88 years of age, continues to display persistence, love and dedication when in the workshop. His devotion is so great that the name ‘Grandpa’s Wood Workshop’ has been granted in recognition of his life-long efforts to sustain the business.
Expertise continues to be imparted from generation to generation in order to maintain and ameliorate specialization in the field with the aim of consistently fulfilling all our customers’ needs.
The Stages of Wood Processing
The wood categories used at Grandpa’s Wood Workshop are mainly beech wood (alternatively termed fagus), olive wood, kermes oak and pine wood.
1The 1st stage of processing includes the choice of wood trunks. The trunks of trees must meet precise dimensional specifications to enable us to remove the required piece and proceed with the processing stage. The trunk is then segmented into different sizes according to the company’s requirements.
2The 2nd stage requires the segmented logs be placed in storage until completely dry and free of moisture.
3The 3rd stage is where the elementary shape is given to the wood. Each log is traced onto and desired workpieces are cut out by means of a band saw.
4In the 4th stage the wood takes on its final shape. We then place the wood we have outlined on the lathe chuck and secure clamps where the workpiece will assume its final form. In the final stage we sandpaper the surface and streamline the now impeccable product before it reaches the customer and is ready for use.
It would be our great pleasure to have the products of our laboratory in your hands, decorate your home, giving also to your cooking a unique "wood aroma", impressing your guests.
