FINISHING TECHNIQUES AND CHARACTERISTICS
IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE THESE OUTSTANDING FINISHES, THE WOOD WE OFFER HAS TO GO THROUGH VARIOUS PROCESSES WHICH AFFECT DIFFERENT TYPES OF WOOD IN DIFFERENT WAYS. SOMETIMES COLOURED OILS ARE ADDED TO PRODUCE AN EVEN MORE DRAMATIC APPEARANCE.
Sapwood is the living part of the tree through which water and sap flow. It is always lighter in colour than the heartwood and certain fuming, smoking and colouring processes emphasise the sapwood since it doesn’t react to such treatments to the same degree. (The effect of these treatments on planks containing sapwood is shown left) 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.
