Butternut – No Sap – (Rustic Grade)
Wood Species / Grade Description
Weight: 1.786 Lb/Sq. Ft (Based on 3/4″ thickness)
This unique species will have many variations allowed. Due to the nature of Butternut, this grade often includes more worm holes than is generally found in WalzCraft’s other Rustic Grades. It may also include mineral, standard knots, pin knots, pith and partially filled “Canyon Knots”. Heartwood color variations are allowed, however, no sap is allowed on the face of the product. Sap which might appear in profiled areas is allowed in small amounts. Knot size and the percentage of rustic defects are not allowed to be specified by the customer. All material 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.
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.
