FAQ

Sustainability:

The high quality birch plywood we use has a full chain of supply FSC Certification, which means the forests it has been grown in, in Russia and the Baltic States, are inspected and certified against strict standards based on FSC’s 10 Principles of Forest Stewardship.

Wherever we can we minimise waste as much as possible within our design and production processes, nesting the pieces as tightly as possible within the sheets. Any waste from the sheets is re-utilised in other studio projects or with other local small businesses. Anything unusable is sent to wood recyclers, where is it made into Fibreboard to be used again in the construction industry.

The glues we use in the laminated table legs is non-toxic, solvent free and biodegradable.

The silky smooth satin-matt finish we achieve on all our furniture after sanding is a very clever blend of natural oils. It is extremely durable and hardwearing, is resistant to common spillages, such as tea, coffee, fizzy drinks and water, as well as being sweat and saliva proof (!) and suitable for children’s use.

Who are we?

Ply-Works is designed and made by Flux CNC Studio, under the director Alice Jacobs, along with team members Benjie and Shona. We have been Glasgow's leading laser and CNC Specialists for almost 5 years and have worked on many, many projects for a wide range of artists and designers. 

Ply-Works is our first collection under our own name and brings together everything we have learnt over the last five years and is, of course, proudly branded 'Designed and Made in Glasgow'
