REFINISHING AND FURNISHING REFURBISHING HELPS MINIMIZE YOUR IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT
Recycling your existing furniture and millwork and using the latest products and techniques for wood repair, refinishing and furnishing refurbishing helps minimize your impact on the environment and saves money.
Refurbishing, rather than buying new, substantially lowers your energy footprint. There is a tremendous amount of energy required to harvest lumber, process it and build the new furniture; refurbishing existing furniture eliminates the need to expend this energy. Help Save Forests and Assure Minimal Environmental Impact — Using older furniture reduces the need to harvest wood for new furniture. Lower Landfill Impact — Recycling and reusing furniture puts the furniture to use, rather than discarding it and adding it to a landfill. Assure Minimal Environmental Impact — Using environmentally friendly products reduces air pollutants and helps assure a healthier environment for employees and customers.
WHAT IS A WOODWRIGHT?
“Wright” is an occupational surname originating in England. For example, a woodwright is a person who works with wood, and is used as a British family name. Wright is also an anglicized version of the Scots Gaelic clan name “MacIntyre” or “Mac an t-Saoir”, meaning “Son of the Wright”, or Son of the Carpenter”.
The word Carpentier, now Carpenter was introduced into England in 1066 and slowly replaced the traditional name and meaning of wright. Wright is the thirteenth most common surname in the United Kingdom. Its use as a occupational title continued until the mid 1800s. Its occupational use was often combined with other words such as wheelwright or playwright.
