Furniture Manufacturing Process
The Manufacturing Process of Indian Furniture
Indian furniture is unique based on its products and techniques. Generally, solid wood is used to develop Indian furniture, which passes through a range of processes. Here, we will focus on these processes to determine how we make Indian furniture.
The wood requires a seasoning chamber for at least 13 to 16 days in winter and between 7 to 10 days in summers. The moisture must be between 5 to 9 percent to allow the sturdiness of the wood to be maintained. Such food can withstand most weather conditions. Usually, the process removes the moisture that is contained in cell walls. The final product of this activity is called seasoned wood or seasoned timber. Water is removed at a constant pace to avoid any form of warping.
Chemical treatment is a must requirement for certain kinds of wood. The manufacturing process starts after the chemical treatment. The chemical process may also include the gasification of wood. Here, high temperature cases are used to ensure that the wood can become more compact. Additionally, organic compounds may be used to remove any infectants.
The horizontal wood cuttings are sorted based on their usage. Additionally, different lengths are cut to meet future requirements. For example, a large-sized plank may be required for living room furniture, compared to a children’s bed.
The wood needs evening to ensure there is a similar thickness. The thickness varies between different types of wood, including Sheesham, teak, or mango wood. Thus, the thickness must be planned to ensure that the final furniture has a similar thickness and appearance. The thickness also has to be removed to ensure that the final furniture item is of top-notch quality. Otherwise, the customers may feel wary of buying it. The thickness planner also allows flat ends on both sides of the furniture. More importantly, it also helps to set the overall size based on the furniture to be constructed.
Here, we complete the rough cutting, which we later use to make small furniture parts. Such parts may include the drawers and small doors. The trolly cutting machine cuts the huge logs of wood into smaller parts. Also, it maintains the thickness set by the thickness planner during the cutting process.
We do not complete a single furniture piece from one plank. Instead, furniture requires joints and different parts to be attached. The adhesives used here are strong and can minimize the movement as much as possible. This minimal movement is crucial to avoid your dining table tops or sofa to shimmer during use. Poor clamping may reduce the ease of use of the final furniture and may result in durability issues. The glue choice also matters. In some cases, if the furniture is delicate, the glue used may have a lower potency. Otherwise, it can corrode the wood. For most furniture, the glue is of a strong potency to hold the planks together in the long run.
Sanding gives the wood a finer texture. We pass the wood through the sanding machine, which reduces the time taken. Manual sanding can take a couple of hours. A good quality machine ensures a very smooth top. Manual sanding has the benefit of very neat finish. However, the time constraint reduces the production speed, which makes it unsuitable for commercial production. On the other hand, the machine based sanding provides standardized quality for a consistent output speed.
The neat look of the furniture edges and cuts occurs using the panel saw. This saw helps to remove the extra edge material. Additionally, it helps to shape the wood into a different material neatly.
However, precaution must be taken while using this saw. Moisture in this stage can damage the product in the long-run. Also, it can reduce the furniture’s longevity. The best aspect of the wooden Indian furniture is that it can be rectified and refurbished for any other use later. Additionally, the variations in color and irregular grain is not a problem when developing Indian furniture. Thus, it provides the maximum flexibility to make the product suited to your needs.
Indian furniture passes through the state of the art development steps, ensuring that the same wood can be rectified and any anomalies can be removed later. Let us know if the process intrigues you to buy such furniture.
