the aged wood finish consists of a colorful blend of wood species - cedar, cypress, douglas fir, pine, poplar, spruce - which is hand-planed for a rough, beat-up texture and treated with a vinegar-based wash for a darker tone. the wood is sealed with a smoke-tinted natural oil, giving it a well-worn patina.
an overall brownish-gray tone, with lots of color variation within, this wood finish pairs well with any of our steel finishes. it is our most forgiving finish, in that it comes pre-distressed with knicks and scrapes.
solid wood will expand and contract based on the humidity level of its environment. although very strong, solid wood is susceptible to scratches and marks. our aged finish allows additional marks and scratches to blend in seamlessly, though we still recommend protecting the wood as best you can with the use of trivets, coasters, and pads for hot, wet, or coarse items.
