Manufacturing Small Thermally Modified Wood Products

Small Wood Parts

We are the first step in manufacturing small thermally modified wood products.

A New Opportunity for Product Developers

This is an exceptionally important market opportunity, of which many product developers are unaware. Markets are saturated with unimpressive plastics and synthetics, many of which are found to be increasingly responsible for environmental damage, adverse health impacts, substandard performance, and poor life cycles. Once you understand the remarkable advantages of thermally modified wood in general, your eyes open to the possibilities.

Small wood parts and products, developed from thermally modified wood, provide a visually stunning, unique, and powerful way for product developers to dominate competitive markets.

Note: This article will presume that you have studied the amazing characteristics of thermally modified wood, in that it is ultra-strong, and free from alteration in shape (even in extreme environmental conditions). But most importantly, parts developed from it are phenomenally beautiful and aesthetically distinguished from one another even when they are identically manufactured.

Small Wood Parts and Product Possibilities

Put your creative hat on, and consider the possibilities in YOUR market. We’ve only listed a few product concepts here. However, they should help you to generalize the possibilities of manufacturing small thermally modified wood products for your industry.

Consider the following:

The Automobile Industries (New and Aftermarket):

  • Custom Auto Interior Accents, from shift knobs to bezels, handles, locks, vent covers, buttons and more. The possibilities are broad enough that we might write a completely separate article to address this amazing market niche.
  • Auto Show Accessories. Imagine an engine cover (or dress up kit) accented with genuine wood parts. It would be mind-blowing. It would set your vehicle apart from the generic competition. Seeing thermally modified wood does not change shape when subjected to reasonable levels of heat, thermally modified wood accents could be easily integrated into properly designed carbon fiber, metal, and synthetic dress up kits. Final product testing would be your job, but getting the wood to you is ours.

Commercial and Residential Interior Concepts:

  • There are SO many possibilities in this market that they cannot be fully mentioned in a single article. However, we’ve all seen stunning accents on walls in restaurants, hotels, and homes. These might take the form of frameless wall clocks, hanging utensils, thematic items such as sports or wildlife visuals, etc. Those that are made from plastic are often cheap. Those that are made from ceramics break. Also those that are made from normal wood can be counted on to warp and twist. BUT thermally modified wood versions of these SAME products are rich and appealing, they don’t break, and they NEVER warp or twist. They can be washed in water if desired. They can be dropped without shattering. As well as catching the eye of those who have the opportunity to see how you’ve designed your visual space.
  • Free-standing design items, such as letters, numbers, symbols, candle holders, etc., can all be made from beautiful, solid, thermally modified small wood products. Whatever you design will never warp and/or break. It won’t become “wobbly,” or slowly stop hanging flat against a wall. Small wood parts and products, when designed from thermally modified wood, are more attractive than petroleum based synthetic products, stronger than ceramics, and more stable than traditional wood products. If you’re a product developer, you really should consider taking an honest look at manufacturing small thermally modified wood products.

Thermally Modified Wood Tools as Opposed to Metals, Synthetics, and Weak Wood:

  • Utensils. That’s right: from “silverware” to cooking utensils, the tools we use to prepare and consume our food are increasingly being made out of wood. This is a growing market, to which many product developers are responding. However, we have not, as yet, seen a single manufacturer of these products touting the use of thermally modified wood, and most have warnings that their products can be damaged by water. Manufacturing small thermally modified wood products (specifically silverware and cooking utensils) will immediately bypass the problems associated with “wood movement due to moisture.” However, more importantly, because of the species of hardwood that we use, the more visually striking your wood utensils are, the stronger they’ll be. Seriously. The figure in our small wood parts is actually the strongest part of the wood once thermal modification is complete. You want a product that will dominate this market? Use thermally modified wood. 
  • Handles for indoor, outdoor, shop, and kitchen tools, when made as thermally modified small wood parts, will not swell, twist, warp, or crack due to contact with water. This puts these small wood parts into a category of their own. The BEST tools, using wood in the handles, should start with thermally modified wood. The most uniquely designed tools using wood in the handles, will visually and functionally dominate their competition. 

In summary, if you’re a product developer, and you want to consider manufacturing small thermally modified wood parts, contact us. We could enable you to launch a small wood parts product line that you might have never before dreamed possible.
