This natural wood veneer has no chemicals, is easy to work and responds well to glues. Its dark and warm colour fits perfectly to domestic spaces seeking sophistication and distinction, but without sacrificing the natural look and texture of Oak. This wood is highly valued in Europe and the United States. Its use is a sign of distinction widely recognized, and is associated with quality and nobility of the material itself.
Regular Red Oak grows in the north eastern of the United States and South eastern Canada. Its grain is straight and colour is light to medium brown. It is easy to identify Red Oak from other Oaks due to its reddish cast, a refinement that defines Red Oak as a warm and cosy decorative surface. Over this well known and classical raw material, a smoking process has been reproduced to shift contrast and to reach even warmer tones.
In order to enhance its natural look, CHANNEL VENEERS has developed a process of wood modification over this wood specie. By smoking the Red Oak veneers, the company provides a much warmer and contrasted material. After the fume process, the perfectly straight grain and the absence of glossy rays remains, while the general colour of the wood is darker and more homogeneous. Its reddish cast is intensified and contrast between heartwood and sapwood is higher. As a result of this, new decorative effects are possible.
CHANNEL VENEERS produces Red Oak Quarter Cut Fumé on request. It is also possible to find this beautiful reference in its warehouses. For further information related to any special oak veneer, please contact directly with the company.
