Due to our product being constructed from real wood materials, there is always a little variation between pieces. These acceptable differences contain mineral deposits, joint lines, end grain, and also wood knots.
Mineral deposits are natural occurring deposits that may appear lighter or darker when stain is applied. These deposits add character to the wood and is often considered to be an asset to the aesthetic of the material.
Wood (especially solid wood) will expand and contract which may cause small finish splits where two pieces come together. These joint lines are typically only visible on painted projects and will not weaken or lessen the strength of the joints.
End grain will be noticeable on edges of our cabinetry where the wood is cut across the growth rings. End grain surfaces are also softer in composition which causes it to absorb more stain and often appear darker.
Knots are a common and naturally occurring phenomenon in real wood material. Many customers value knots as a desirable feature in the wood.
