We offer a choice of colourful laminates made from cross laminated layers of hardwoods, known as lamellas which are glued together with the grain alternating at 90 degree angles for each layer. They are then bonded under heat and pressure with durable, moisture-resistant adhesives. Aside from being visually appealing, cross-laminating layers of wood veneer improves the structural properties of wood by distributing along-the-grain strength of wood in both directions which makes each handle extremely durable.
