McNaughton Building can provide custom furniture and benchtops from recycled and reclaimed timber, to suit any requirements.
Furniture ranges from tables and chairs, bedside tables, benchtops and wardrobes. Also bookshelves and bathroom and laundry vanities, custom made guitar cupboards and workbenches from timber slabs reclaimed during house construction/landclearing
Recycled Timber is always better for furniture or joinery as is stable and dry, although all timber will swell and shrink slightly with varying humidity levels, including furniture and floors etc.
Timber finishes preferred include Osmo, Organ Oil and U-Little Beauty oil based stain-wax, all for varying applications. Osmo for high water resistance such as benchtops, vanities etc, to waxing for general use shelving and wardrobes, to Organ oil for extended exterior use.
Custom furniture is designed for specific uses and locations, and is visually pleasing with a warm energy from recycled materials

Timber benchtops are visually spectacular and provide a little more forgiveness with glass etc. The finishes today are durable and environmentally friendly and can be high gloss, semi or matt finish. All bringing the natural warmth to life and a warm energy provided from recycling the timber and giving it another life.
Western Red Cedar is a fantastic material for furniture construction also, as it is light-weight, strong and durable. Becoming hard to find, and recycled is always the preferred option.
Recycled timber is useful for creating excellent storage solutions, especially for books and souveniers.
