In previous times, surfaces were chopped by hand with a broad hatchet—work that took a very long time. In 1980, Peter Moser began to experiment and developed the world’s first chopping machine for surface processing. Nowadays, the machines are fully automatic. Our current machines can process three-layer boards as large as 6 metres by 2.1 metres and beams or glue-laminated timber as large as 20 metres by 1.2 metres without fail.
The technical details of surface processing remain our company secret. The machines we helped to develop process the wood in a way that makes each pattern unique. There is no repeating pattern and each piece is an individual item—just like surfaces chopped by hand.
