Oak

Ghost

American Oak is an imported hardwood and ranges from pale yellow to mid-brown in colour. American Oak typically has a fine grain that is strong and visible with few markings or features. Please be advised that timber is a natural material with grain detail, colour and finishes subject to variation. Additionally solid timber will be more susceptible to movement in warmer climates. All of our timber is available with either AFS/PEFC or FSC Chain of Custody certification.

Care

Timber is a natural product that will respond to its environmental conditions. We recommend you avoid extreme variation in temperature and humidity as well as contact with liquids and heat. Regularly wipe timber to remove dust and dirt. Do not leave liquid to sit on timber surfaces as it will penetrate and may cause staining. Wipe up spills immediately with a damp cloth. The tone of the timber will alter over time with exposure to UV light, please protect timber from direct or reflected sunlight. Do not use cleaners or polishes as these may cause permanent damage or colour variation to your furniture. Take care when placing or moving unglazed ceramics and other items with an irregular base finish as they may scratch the surface.  Depending on the position of the piece and the conditions within your home, we recommend treating with a nourishing oil once a year. Before you begin oiling, place a protective layer below the furniture to collect any drips and always test the oil on an inconspicuous area before applying. Slab or underfloor heating can be damaging to solid timber products. The heat causes the bottom side to dry out differently to the top which can cause bowing, warping or cracking. We advise that you do not keep solid timber pieces on underfloor heating.
