Mr. Steen Lauridsen, ’woodman’, 35 years employment with Rud Rasmussen says

Right from the moment you start looking for the right trunk till you cut it open and look for colour nuances.. –it all requires years of experience and craftsmanship.

A tree is a piece of nature, and it is all about finding the right opportunity in every single piece of tree. Here colour, structure and the tree’s hardness are all determinating factors. Trees are different, not two pieces of wood are the same – at the same time this is what makes it both fascinating and demanding to find the perfect wood for our furniture production.

But when we do find the right wood this makes it easier to create the right piece of Rud Rasmussen furniture. So this is what I do – every time!
