Woodworking process

Here at sanisio they include creative moments, a lot of hard work and years and years of experience.

Our first step in woodworking process is hydro-thermal processing. As a natural material, wood sometimes tends to continue with ‘life’ even when it is no longer a living tree. To minimize it, once in a while we cook the raw pieces. The process of cooking the raw wood is carried out for two reasons.

First thing is that it significantly reduces the time wooden material needs to dry naturally. This way after only few weeks it is ready for use.

First thing is to know what you want to do. We mostly do sketches on paper when we feel inspired. But not always. Often the chosen piece and its specific texture inspires us. That is why our next step is important. To find and choose the right piece of wood for the wanted design with nice colors and texture patterns.

It’s time to apply the desired sketch and cut it on the band saw. Now we have the raw form of the desired product.

And the final step in woodworking process – sanding. A lot of it! We do it in few stages, sometimes with use of basic tools but always with our hands. Truth is, nothing can replace the natural tactility of human touch. Sanding is done in several stages. We do it first with rough and then all the way to superfine abrasive paper.
Between each of this phases all surfaces are refined by manual sanding. It is a repetitive action so it’s important to be patient. Touch is our most important tool.
