We often get calls and customers in our showroom who think they have a certain species of wood, but in reality, it’s something else. Identifying species of wood can be tricky, unless you work with it EVERYDAY.
Old wood is imperfect. It bears the scars of hundreds of years of weathering and aging. It is infused with the grain and character that only comes with decades of growth in virgin forests. It has cracks, splits, holes, and even after it’s been baked in our kiln it will continue to morph and settle before your eyes. Antique wood has a soul, and it’s best not to contain it. Consider yourself warned.
