How to treat Rosewood before making furniture?

We have modern equipment.  The wood is kiln dried with hot boiling stream in the chambers.  We keep the moisture content in the furniture about 12% for selling in the United States that prevents the chance of shrinkage and cracking.

How to make a product?

We have modern equipment from Germany, Italy and Japan for cutting the raw rosewood.  We use these equipments and high speed routers to make furniture by using the traditional method of Chinese Double interlocking Joints, but not using nails.  Therefore, the furniture is very strong and is long lasting.  All carving work is done by hand with wood gouges by our experienced craftsmen.

How to do the color furnishings?

We use Chinese Natural lacquer - an old Chinese predecessor, produced from the "Lacquer Tree" in mainland China.  This kind of lacquer is expensive but is the best method to do the color finishing.  The lacquer seals and protects the wood and allows the beautiful natural grain pattern of the wood to show through, and is resistant to Heat, Water, and Alcohol.  The Natural lacquer is applied 7-10 times to each piece of furniture, and the furniture can be colored as natural, dark, or various colors.  As the lacquer is natural, furniture is easy to be cleaned by water, or water cloth.  No Chemical Detergents is necessary.
