This unique species will have many variations allowed. Gum pockets, mineral, sapwood, heartwood and knots are common.
Color variations may range from white in the sapwood area to a deep red in the heartwood area. Pin knots are allowed on the face and in profiled areas of the product. Knot size and the percentage of gum pockets, sapwood, heartwood and number of knots are not allowed to be specified by the customer. All materials will be structurally sound.
In an effort to utilize as many natural characteristics as possible and to improve yield, some knots may have voids and some “Canyon Knots” may be partially filled, but no visible light will show through. Occasional worm holes are allowed.
Knots are a characteristic of Rustic Grade, however, they are difficult to include on moldings less than 1 ½” wide because they substantially weaken the molding. When a molding is less than 1 ½” wide, WalzCraft will try to maintain a Rustic Grade look without the use of knots.
Special Note About Photosensitive Darkening
Due to the natural photosensitive darkening process that occurs with Cherry, Lyptus, Mahogany and Sapele, we advise that you finish these products immediately upon receiving.
If a color variation transpires, simply exposing the product to direct natural sunlight will help to result in a more even shading. Traces of shadowing (darkening) may be visible, and considered acceptable, on the back sides of product.
Disclaimer for Color
Actual product color and detail may vary due to individual computer preferences and monitor settings. We highly recommend ordering an actual product sample of the species and stain color to eliminate any confusion.
