Custom Timber Furniture Maker - why choose us?

These days there are a lot of custom furniture makers out there so what makes Bombora different?  Why should you choose us?? 

 

We don't just make furniture, we make furniture for people....

To us at Bombora, you are a person not a piece and as your furniture goes through our admin and workshop processes it doesn't have a number, or the design description on it... it has your name. Your piece of furniture is important to us, we put love and care into it as we know that it is and will be very important to you.  Whether it be the table you and your family share meals over, the buffet you run your fingers over every time you walk past or the TV cabinet that you find yourself staring at rather than at "the Block", we take great pride in the fact that our furniture helps to make your house your home.  

We are not a production line ......

Each piece of Bombora custom furniture is created from start to finish by a single one of our talented furniture makers who take great pride in their work and the finished product. All of our furniture is made by hand not by a computer. This results in a much better quality product, from the placement of the boards, to the quality of the construction, to the look and feel of the finish. 

 

High level of customer service and communication....

It is our goal in the admin team, for you not to have to contact us is any stage of the process wanting to know what is happening. From the start of the process, we will let you know the timelines for what is happening and when.  We will also contact you at certain predetermined points through the production process to let you know what is happening and to arrange the next step of the process.  Our level of service doesn't just stop at the end of production, we also organise your delivery as well as send you detailed instructions on how to care for your furniture. 

One piece, one tree // sustainable business practices... 

Being an eco-responsible business is a top priority for us at Bombora.  We have developed the one piece one tree initiative to counteract the environmental impact of producing your piece of furniture from the milling of the timber, the machinery to produce the piece as well as the transport of all of the consumables, timber and the finished product by planting a tree for each piece of furniture that we produce.  Find out more about this initiative on this blog post

 

We specialize in highly featured recycled timber furniture....

What we love about recycled timber is that every piece is completely unique and as it has been grown in natural conditions, it is full of character.  This character or feature are such things as knots, sap lines, sap pockets, bolt holes, tonal variations and prominent grains.  Creating furniture from heavily featured timber takes more time and skill than using new or low feature timbers.  Time and an eye for aesthetic is required to lay out the boards in a way that is balanced, appealing and does the timber justice. It also takes more time and finesse to finish the timber properly as each feature needs to be hand filled to ensure the final product is completely smooth and is free of gaps. Creating pieces with a high level of feature is what we love to do! 

Personalized design....

Each piece of furniture that we create is a one off and we treat you and the piece so from beginning to the end.  We firstly send you a detailed questionnaire to ensure that we have all the information that we need for the design, function and dimensions of the piece as well as specific information on your preferences for natural and recycled character levels in the timber. Whether you get a portfolio design, an amended portfolio or a fully customized piece,  Bombora owner, head designer and furniture maker Luke will use the information from your questionnaire to generate you design drawings of your piece. If any further changes to the design are required, a revision to the original drawing is then possible.

 

Individualized timber selection....

Just as each piece of recycled timber is unique, so are your tastes.  Luke hand selects the timber for the piece based on your preferences from the questionnaire and then sends through images for your approval.  If desired, you can also come to the workshop to personally choose the timber or you can join Luke at the timber yardto make the selection off their racks.
