Concept Giroux is a team who accomplish great things. We build every piece in our workshop in Chambly, Quebec. We use noble wood species and durable finishing product.
The pure nobility of wood
At Concept Giroux, neither paint nor stain is used. We only work with the pure wood in its natural state. A mineral oil is applied if the product is for chopping food or we apply a maintenance-free polyurethane acrylic protective finish. Our natural-looking finish is clear and shine-free, so all the natural colours and details of the wood are highlighted. The added benefit is the ease of future corrections if there is a scratch to repair.Contact Us
