how mybettershelf furniture is made

Handcrafted to last

See how we make our furniture, how we care about the details and how we (and you) act for sustainability.

each piece is made by hand

Our workshop is not a place for conveyor belts and automated assembly - a mybettershelf product is handmade and will always be. Each piece gets the same care and attention. 

precious finish

It does not just look good - you'll be glad to touch it every day, as it is sanded and finished smooth, for beauty and protection.

real solid wood

We always use the best available wood material: oak, walnut, maple, cherry just to mention the most popular species. Even exotic wood types are possible if you wish something unique.

professional painting

Painted in a specialized painter workshop, the furniture gets the selected color and finish: matte, semi-gloss or lacquered (high-gloss).

Designed with nature in mind

We always go the extra mile to design the making process in a sustainabile way and we refill nature to compensate for the resources we have used up of.

natural finish

We use a 100% natural-based finish made by the Austrian Natural Naturfarben brand, containing no hazardous materials either for people or nature.

tree refill program

After each order that contains solid wood, we plant a tree via the local MyForest Community Forests organization - this way refilling the material to the nature.

recycled materials

All of our standard orders are shipped in cartoon boxes made of 100% recycled paper material. We recommend keeping the boxes to use them for future storage.

the result

If you select the mybettershelf quality,

  • you can experience the amazing solid wood

  • you'll have handcrafted furniture, made with care

  • there will be no screws visible

  • you'll get the furniture ready to use, fully assembled

As we make our pieces for decades, it was important to create a design that survives the waves of trends: this is why we selected minimalism and made it everlasting.
