Oak is a well known wood. Due to it´s good properties, it´s use has been reserved for the most valuable and demanding applications. Oak wood is naturally durable, resistance and easy to work. More over, the grain and texture of Oak timber has been historically recognized and is currently highly appreciated. In addition to this, when Oak wood is Crown Cut, the boards show a beautiful and classical pattern which is the perfect image of everybody´s idea of what natural wood is.
The Oak natural colour is light to medium brown. This characteristic doesn’t fit to some uses and decorative purposes that require darker tones. Dyeing or varniching the wood surface makes possible to change its color, but also reduces the natural shine and contrast of the veneer. As an alternative to that final treatments of the Oak veneers, CHANNEL VENEERS has developed a smoking treatment that turns oak into a darker wood. This process aloows a perfect control of the tone along the surface of the wood as well as a much more natural dark tone.
As a result of that treatment, Oak Crown Cut Fumé is a noble and eery decorative surface. It remains the classical appear of oak wood texture while makes possible a more dense and sophisticated look. Final surface is not just black. It is darker than the natural one, but it conserves the reddish tone of oak wood defining a warm and refined wood surface.
