Once the design process has been completed and an order has been placed the bespoke designs can then be made in the Treske workshops. All Treske furniture and soft furnishings are made to order and design specification and accuracy are paramount throughout the entire process.
Fully detailed site surveys are really important parts of the process to ensure our furniture and soft furnishings will fit perfectly into their correct locations. Our head fitter will visit site and take really precise measurements and then drawings are created using these dimensions. ‘Sign-off’ drawings are always sent through to the client for approval before manufacturing commences ensuring that any changes can be made as required.
The design CAD drawings are used to check and issue the detailed cutting lists to the workshop for all parts required for each piece of furniture. Some of these individual pieces will then be cut and shaped using CNC machines which helps to ensure absolute accuracy. Treske’s CAD and CNC technicians will oversee all the parts of this process to ensure each furniture component is modelled correctly before any wood is cut.
Timber is carefully chosen to ensure it completely matches the requirements of the piece of furniture being made, from the wood type through to the grain character and final finish required. Once selected these sawn blanks of timber will pass onto the more detailed stages of the machining process to be planed up to final sizes and have joints added as required.
Accurate machining is crucial to the success of the furniture. Treske invest heavily in various types of machinery to ensure efficient use of timber and produce the best furniture components and features.
Once in component form the furniture is assembled by cabinet makers. Depending on the amount of work in any one commission it might be a single cabinet maker or a team working on the project.
Our customers often visit Treske to see their work in progress. Key times to plan a visit are at the timber selection and cabinet making stages. If customers cannot visit Treske we can send photographs of the different stages.
Colours and finishes will have been discussed at the design stage. Treske mostly lacquer furniture, as this durable finish protects the furniture from wear, is UV, water and heat resistant. Other finishes such as wax, oil and different levels of gloss lacquers are all expertly used by Treske as well. Stains and fuming to colours are done before the final finishing. Lastly the furniture is polished before a final check and delivery.
All furniture is delivered and installed by Treske craftsmen to the highest standards. Our fitters carry CSCS cards and will conform to site health and safety requirements.
