FINISHING TECHNIQUES AND CHARACTERISTICS TO CREATE THE OUTSTANDING FINISHES WE OFFER, THE WOOD GOES THROUGH VARIOUS PROCESSES WHICH AFFECT DIFFERENT TYPES OF WOOD IN DIFFERENT WAYS. SOMETIMES COLORED OILS ARE ADDED TO PRODUCE AN EVEN MORE INDIVIDUAL APPEARANCE.

SAPWOOD

SMOKED & WHITE OILED

Sapwood is the living part of the tree through which water and sap flow. It is always lighter in color than the heartwood and certain fuming, smoking and coloring processes emphasise the sapwood since it doesn’t react to such treatments to the same degree. By definition sapwood contains more moisture, however this is no cause for concern since all Havwoods’ timber has been carefully dried and its stability is ensured when supplied in an engineered form.
