At DeFehr Furniture, we’re proud to use Canadian pine from local and sustainable forests. Many of our solid pine collections are Made in Canada at every step, starting with Manitoba pine harvested within 200 kilometers from our Winnipeg plant.
At DeFehr, Canadian pine is our 1st choice for table tops, surfaces, gables, and drawer fronts. That means that each solid pine product is unique. The Edgewood Dining Collection showcases this beautifully, with rich wood grains and stunning live edge detailing. Solid pine paired with antique hardware gives the Edgewood a clean yet rustic feel.
The forest-to-home process begins with one of our carefully selected Canadian pine suppliers. Pine logs are chosen carefully, cut to size, and kiln-dried using a special process that minimizes warping and crystallizes sap. This drying process is a crucial step that ensures that the wood meets our stringent quality standards.
The Canadian pine is then ready for its journey to DeFehr, where the manufacturing process begins. The wood enters our machining process where each piece is worked to our exact standards for cutting, gluing, shaping, drilling, doweling, and sanding.
As items move down the production line, they’re assembled and then placed on large rollers. This makes it easier for our craftspeople to handle the assembled pieces, ensuring their health and safety. These talented workers then carefully rub and spray each piece of furniture by hand, creating a finish that’s highly resistant to spills, stains, scratches and heat to prolong the life of solid pine DeFehr furniture.
The finished pieces then continue to the packaging department where we again ensure every product is to our standards for quality and craftsmanship.
So cozy up around The Stockton or any of our DeFehr solid pine collections, pop some popcorn, and get ready for family movie night. You can share in our Canadian pride, knowing that your movie venue is made in Canada!
