Birch – Rustic Grade
Wood Species / Grade Description
Weight: 2.875 Lb/Sq. Ft (Based on 3/4″ thickness)
Door Dimensions of Wood Species Pictured: 12” W x 18” H
This unique species will have many variations allowed. Small character marks in the grain of the wood, usually referred to as “fleck”, are common. There will be some knots, but none larger than 1½” in diameter measured at the narrowest point.
Color variations may cover the entire range that is normally seen in the sapwood of White and Yellow Birch. Some heartwood may also be included.
Knot size and percentage of fleck and 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 wormholes 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 molding is less than 1 ½” wide, WalzCraft will try to maintain a Rustic Grade look without the use of knots.
Note: All Wood Species Samples are shown with a Natural / Clear Coat (No Stain) Finish and will look different when ordered unfinished.
