What Materials Does TGT Studios Use?
..........TGT Studios exclusively designs and builds with premium hardwoods. Most commonly, we use: black walnut, maple, purpleheart, bloodwood, paduak, rosewood, ebony, and cherry. Woods are selected for their aesthetic qualities with an emphasis on natural colour and interesting grain patterns. No woods are ever dyed, stained, or painted at TGT Studios as we prefer the beauty of each individual piece to speak for itself. Other materials used are steel, brass, copper, and glass.
Where Are The Materials Sourced?
..........Every piece in TGT Studios furniture collection is unique and built with sustainably harvested Vancouver Island timbers; in many cases the specific site of the tree is known. For example, the new TGT Studios River Collection features storm-downed canadian black walnut from an orchard in Comox, BC. This kind of quality, locally sourced, and unique material is a keystone of Kyle's work. Additionally, TGT Studios works with a local artisanal sawyer to process timbers of interest resulting in the most direct Tree-To-Table experience possible.
