Please note that wood can vary considerably from piece to piece and these pictures are only a guide.
Wood is a natural material and it is important that you do not mistake its unique properties as imperfections or flaws.
Joins and Knots
These are a natural property of all wood furniture. Sometimes these are more visible on some pieces than others. This is not a flaw and only add interest to the piece.
Due to humidity and temperature change, all timber will display movement from season to season.
Sunlight and Heat
Avoid exposing timber furniture to excessive heat as this may cause the wood to crack or split. Do not place hot object directly onto timber either as this can scorch the surface.
Direct sunlight will cause timber to change or darken, even when the timber is stained, lacquered or painted. Please be aware of this if you are placing a piece near a direct source, eg: a window.
