This natural veneer is a singular wood finishing. The texture is regular and general colour tone warm and dark. Scratches over the surface define a very special decorative surface which is mostly used to emphasize the value of natural materials in restaurants and coffee shops.
Ordinary Red Oak is a classical wood. Despite of it’s quality and hardness, is well known all over the world. It presents a light to medium brown heartwood while its sapwood is much lighter. Oak grain is very straight and shows a lot of short lines, especially when it is Quarter Sawn.
In order to change the tone of the natural wood, CHANNEL VENEERS has developed a smoking process that makes possible to keep all the refinements of the natural wood colour at the same time that avoids the massive use of chemicals. The process doesn’t change the tone of the sapwood while the heartwood is very much darkened. This fact makes possible new decorative effects as sapwood contrast much more to heartwood. In addition to this modification, the company is also able to scratch the surface of the veneer to define a more rough surface.
Red Oak Quarter Cut Scratched Fumé is also an exclusive product by CHANNEL VENEERS. The company is able to offer any dimensions or amounts. As this is an special reference, it is usually produced on request. For further information related to this veneer or any other scratched wood surface, please contact directly with the company.
