the natural maple finish consists of domestically and responsibly-harvested solid maple. after surfacing the rough sawn lumber, we hand select and arrange each plank based on its color and naturally-occurring unique markings (pitch pockets, mineral streaks, and knots). leaving the wood light and natural, we seal this finish with a clear oil for long term protection.
an overall blonde tone, this wood finish pairs well with any of our steel finishes. for visual contrast choose waxed or matte black; for clean and crisp, go for glossy white.
solid wood will expand and contract based on the humidity level of its environment. while solid maple is very strong, it is susceptible to scratches and marks, so the use of trivets, coasters and pads are recommended for hot, wet or coarse items.
