Each shelf is unique and displays its own individual beauty through its cracks, knots and splits. You should allow for further cracking after receiving your shelf as this is a normal part of the acclimatisation process. We advise all customers to allow the shelf to get use to its new environment prior to installation.
The air dried oak we use has some natural characteristics. These are due to the oak responding to environmental forces and changes over time. These natural characteristics give the oak a unique look and adds “personality” to all the products we produce. Due to this each beam / shelf is unique in its characteristics and will vary from piece to piece. Below are the characteristics you will find naturally occurring in our products:
Checks are the formation of cracks in the wood normally caused by tension stresses. They often develop early in drying because the lumber surfaces dry too quickly as a result of low relative humidity. Air dried oak can have surface checks which adds character.
Knots are usually with a darker coloured centre, outlined with resin and standing out from the grain. They give wood special character and make timber boards look more authentic as no two knots look the same.
These marks are a naturally occurring finish called "medullary rays" and are something which add a rich character and beauty to all of our oak products:
Our oak is sourced from well managed forests. We buy all PEFC & FSC certified timber. Our air dried oak is typically 2-5 years air dried.
