MACHINING & ASSEMBLY

 

Machining and assembly are extremely laborious and require a high degree of precision and ingenuity. Philippe Hurel respects certain ancestral assembly techniques to the letter, including such techniques as the so-called queue-d'aronde (dovetail joint) or the celebrated tenon and mortise joint.

In our workshop everyone is accorded the noble title of cabinet-maker.

Up to five specialists are required for a chair, which once assembled, is dried for twenty-four to forty-eight hours before being handed over to those in charge of finishing operations.
