worn maple wood finish

worn maple

Regular price $ 5

the worn 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). we treat the wood with a vinegar-based wash, which reacts with the tannins in the wood resulting in the color/tone variations you see in the photo. the finish is sealed with a smoke-tinted natural oil for long term protection.

an overall light brown-gray tone, this wood finish pairs well with any of our steel finishes. for a rugged look, choose waxed steel; for an uptown vibe, go with stainless.

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.
