Items of the worst quality are mass-produced. However, if the artisan is making a one-off piece of furniture, he will be careful enough to create a piece of furniture of the highest quality. Thus custom made refectory tables are usually of higher quality than the mass-produced ones. After all, this is a one-off work of art which should be handled with great care.
3. Long-Lasting Refectory Tables
You cannot compare mass-produced refectory tables to the custom-made ones. When making custom made refectory tables, the artisans focus on delivering work of the highest quality. In the end, what you get is a piece of art that will last for a long time to come. Apart from sustainable timber, the artisans may also use recycled timber. You can, therefore, be confident that the refectory table you are acquiring is sustainable for the environment.
4. Preserving Valuable Skills
To get custom made refectory tables, you have to work with a skilled local artisan. By so doing, you will contribute to the preservation of a craft that has been passed from one generation to another.
5. Being Sure Of the Origin of the Furniture
The complexity of modern supply chains has made it impossible to know the origin of a product. Equally important, you may not be in a position to tell how the product was made. It is not possible to know how the product was made and from where the raw materials were sourced. If you opt for custom-made refectory tables, that will not be an issue. After all, the furniture does not have to pass through the hand of importers, distributors, wholesalers, and retailers. Besides, it will cost less, given that it passed through a short chain of distribution to reach you.
6. Get Emotionally Connected
Once a custom made refectory table is delivered to you, a rare sense of emotional connection starts. In fact, there is so much you can learn from the artisan. Apart from having an appreciation of the production methods, you will be able to get a deep understanding of the materials involved. As the product nears completion, you will keep providing your valuable input to the artisan.
