Tuomaala™ Bench

History of Tuomaala™

Tuomaala™ -series got its name from a village called Tuomaala in Eastern Finland where evaquees from Karelia moved after Winter War in the late 1930’s. Different sized stools and benches were used as help around the house. They were originally made by the men of the house by hand from Finnish wood.

Tuomaala™ benches and stools are traditionally made with this old design, by hand, from Finnish wood.

Production

Tuomaala™ benches are made in Laatikkokauppa’s own workshop in Tuusula. The wood is from over 80 year old Finnish pine tree thus making each bench unique. All Tuomaala™ benches are numbered with a serial number and the month and year when the bench was made.

The benches are made with traditional style and no nails or screws are used. The legs are attached with a wedge. This manufacturing techique enables the stool to be repaired by replacing the wedge if a leg turns loose.

Finishing

The benches are processed with Libero spirit stains and Finishing oils. The branch endings are varnished with shella varnish. Tuomaala™ benches are finished with a thin layer of antique wax. Alternatively a hard oil wax, Bloom-wood wax and paint can be used.
