The Irish Coast collection is a tribute to 18th Century Irish carpentry. Ravaged by poverty, craftsmen of the time were forced to salvage discarded timber from the peat bogs after the country had been stripped bare of trees. This resulted in a jigsaw method of construction which became an art form in itself and which craftsmen have lovingly recreated.
Most of P.G.T.'s wood is sourced from larch, pine, fir and assorted semi hardwoods reclaimed from discarded packing crates, pallets and dismantled buildings. After the wood has been collected and sorted, all nails and debris is removed by hand.
The recycled wood is kiln dried to exacting specifications, the off-cut timber being used to fuel the kilns and boilers. Strict control of moisture content ensures there will be no warping or splitting. Each product is assembled by hand and finely sanded. Original nail holes and imperfections are retained to enhance the character of the wood.
By using traditional joinery techniques we assure longevity. Hand brushing technique create a unique patina, colour and feeling of warmth. Some finishes take up to a year to research, test and perfect. The result is furniture which will add character and style to any home.
