How do we think the stripes were done on this?

Veneered and then inlaid, maybe? In individual strips or one large sheet of veneer and then the strips inlaid in?

You can buy it by the sheet or make it. It is normally Holly inlay.

I was always led to believe that teak was in short supply/endangered etc and yet those links don't seem to suggest this. And you have all those Teak Garden Furniture Clearance Sales!

Sometimes it is cheaper to buy the furniture and chop it up for timber!

In the garden furniture trade, brown wood = teak.

Some of it has a brass plaque certifying it's provenance.

Is that any guarantee though? Just curious.

By coincidence, I was talking to one of my neighbours who imports furniture from the far east and he tells me new regs are about to land an enormous amount of extra bureaucracy on him by practically having to show the location of the tree a piece was made from; pretty complicated for a container load where each piece may be made up of several components, potentially from different sources. This had passed me by but the requirements for 'traders' (us lot) are no more than we already need to do for the IR. It's still OK to cut down and burn millions of acres of trees to make space for palm oil plantations and import it to make shampoo, etc. but if a few sticks end up in a coffee table, you can rest assured we will know where it has come from.

This is the next big big thing in the wood world

I have recently become accredited and the ongoing paperwork involved is truly unbelievable.

It's now become a policy with a lot of jobs - government work especially.

Bigger brands have really gone to town with it. If you go into marks and Spencer's the Fsc logo is on all their wood/paper based products

But FSC is the norm in this country and other legal timber . Its china and the like that are non regulated and are causing the problem . Do you really think the amount of wood work all of us do on here in the whole of our life times will make a dent in what is getting illegally logged ?
I doubt we could even get hold of illegal timber in this country . Its just not worth the hassle for them to try and get it in past customs .
They dont just knock a tree down once a week you know . They do a container ship or two at a time .

Mark, are you saying that you won;t get to make any stuff for Govt unless you can tell them you are Certified?

To my way of thinking that (the Govt) is as daft as bloody ISO9001 was....an exercise in filling in a piece of paper and bugger all to do with quality assurance.

Jason has hit the nail on the head.

Jason

You are right to a fashion but its all about the chain of custody.

We have to have quarantine areas for our stock Fsc and none Fsc it needs to be clearly labelled up, orders must be placed specifically for an Fsc job, which then has to tie up with delivery notes invoices etc etc.

Roger it's looking that way we are winning work from much larger companies than us because of our FsC certification.

You are absolutely correct, it is a system for controlling an administration system. The level of quality is up to the company, 9001 will simply record if it's own systems are being correctly followed.
