What to expect
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.
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.
Knots are a common and naturally occurring phenomenon in real wood material. Many customers value knots as a desirable feature in the wood.
Splits occur occasionally in solid wood material, such as the stiles and rails of doors and/or drawer fronts. This will not affect the structural integrity of the bed.
