how it's made: dondra bed

Much of the wood used to make the dondra bed is reclaimed from old teak doors, painted windows and doors, beams or flooring from inside old houses that are no longer usable or have been replaced.

Purchased as raw materials by weight, it’s often in a wide range of quality—broken/split, with nail holes, including nails, etc.

While the unusable pieces are discarded, the bulk of the lot is sorted, pieces are laminated together, holes filled with a mix of glue and wood, and finished by sanding and lacquer coating.
