Here under is the specific way how every wooden TEATIAMO piece is made:
1. First TEATIAMO craftsman uses a CNC machine to sculpture the one block of wood vibe. The process of this for one piece takes 40minutes.
2. After the CNC machine, the wood vibe is always handcrafted, formed and finished with similar shape and our craftsman will smooth the vibe and work on the details by hand.
3. Our craftsman scrubs the wood vibe and makes it smooth and beautiful.
4. As the finishing we use Italian (Renner Italian) lacquer, which is the organic compound 2- (2-ethoxyethoxy) ethanol of the formula CH3CH2OCH2CH2OCH2CH2OH. The lacquer is non-toxic and complies with Directives 67/548 / EEC, 1999 / 45 / EC and 1272/2008. Lacquer is sprayed on the product 4-5 layers. This finishing has been tested for years and makes the surface to prevent moist and dirt.
Finishing works well with oil, water and silicone lubricants. After use, simply rinse the product with water and dry it off. With good care and proper maintenance wood can last forever.
5. Wood is a natural and safe choice. With varnish finishing you can use water, oil and silicone based lubricants.
