My name is Tristan Titeux, I am a pioneer in the field of Contemporary Eco Fitted Furniture. I create a lot of waste and decided to come up with a design of furniture that used both the off cuts that where too small for anything else and the old furniture we pulled out of peoples homes. I created the ReCut series.

The first piece from the ReCut series is Milo.

My mission is to ensure that all fitted furniture will be totally sustainable in the future.

I am known as a pioneer in my field for the use or unusual materials never seen in fitted furniture such as straw that uses no glue.

I leave people feeling totally satisfied that they have chosen to take an important step towards creating a clean and positive future for their children.

Step 1: Step one: Design

First you need to have an idea in mind about what you would like your piece of furniture to be, what shape and size.

Then draw it on paper or computer, you can use an easy 3D programme called Sketchup which is free.

The idea behind my ReCut TM series is to use pieces that where too small and useless for anything else. Offcuts are usually small and bitty and no good for making large conventional items, so think about how to make your design using small pieces!
What is the sizes of the table?<br><br>It's beautiful and I'm trying to build one similar. Best regards
Hi Violante, <br /> <br />I am pleased you like Milo, it means a lot to me. <br /> <br />The size is 450mm cubed. <br /> <br />Please contact me with pictures of you making it and the finished product? Send them to info@customcarpentry.co.uk please? <br /> <br />Thank you <br /> <br />Tristan
Hello Violante, my table is 450 cubed, but it could be any size.<br><br>Best of luck, please send me a picture of the result!!<br><br>Tristan
Lovely piece of furniture ..be great to see your other work...will be looking to see if I can buy the plant based glue in NZ.
Thank you Ju. The glue I use is by a company called Auro in Germany. If there isn't a company that makes it in NZ have you tried bone and hyde glue? IT is a traditional glue made with just bones and animal skin. Or Fish scale glue you could make yourself?<br><br>Connect with me on Twitter if you want to talk more about natural furniture @TristanTiteux
I love how beautiful it is, just by being simple!
Thank you so much Penelopy, you made me feel happy!
