When talking about decoration, there are currently two clear trends: the rough surfaces and the aged woods. As synthetic surfaces are usually perfectly flat, rough natural materials are very much appreciated by both the final customers and the designers. Also the ageing of the material is a sign of authenticity as syntetic surfaces don’t evolve over the time. Despite of this, CHANNEL VENEERS offers Ash Crown Cut Scratched Aged. The scratches over the wood surface are understood as a sign of authenticity of the raw material. Thanks to it´s roughness, this natural wood surface makes possible to feel the sense of real wood comming out of n old sawmill. Ageing is an extra effect that contributes to enhance this effect of pure natural wood.
In addition to this natural appeal, CHANNEL VENEERS provides to it’s customers a special Ash Crown Cut veneer where the cutting surface is not flat. This original change defines a rough surface that remembers the finishing of boards coming out of an old saw. As the wood surface is not perfectly flat, the veneer reflects light in a very special way. The scratching finishing is identified by the company as FEELWOOD finishing.
The ageing process makes possible to take away the natural warm tone of wood which is transformed into a unique silver grey tone. The final Ash surface is colourless and has a glossy surface, just as if it had been exposed to the sun and the rain during a heavy winter. This modification is the result of a technical process developped at the industrial facilities of CHANNEL VENEERS. As a result of this, the Scratched Ash veneer is especially suitable for easy going commercial spaces and restaurants as well as second housing.
Ash is a well known wood. It is light and hard, having a light brown colour. When it is Crown Cut, it also shows a beautiful and classical pattern of natural wood. Ash solid timber is also easy to find which makes possible to combine it with the veneer. This allows to design and to build with freedom, using either veneer or timber when it is required. As shown in the pictures above, CHANNEL VENEERS selects the best logs of Ash Crown Cut to produce the final aged and scratched wood surface. This makes possible to provide wide bundles in full lengths, most of then over 3.10 meters. Also the quality of the bundles is classified to warranty the exactly desiderated presence of knots.
