Cabinets Wood Species Options
Wood components used in cabinetry are a product of nature and include a variety of species with various densities, colors and grain patterns. Color variation within a wood species is influenced by a number of factors such as moisture and mineral content of the soil, exposure to sunlight and genetic makeup. The tree diameter and type of cut determines growth ring size and orientation, which in turn affects the grain pattern and color. A range of grain patterns and colors may appear on the same panel, and adjacent door and drawer fronts may not match each other. These are natural
characteristics of wood and are not considered a defect.
No single door or front perfectly matches another. The look is created by a blend of cabinets, each with its own unique characteristics. Creating this overall appearance on a single sample is not possible, so we recommend viewing as large a sampling as possible.
• Characteristics represented: mineral streaks, burled grains, natural color variations, grain variations, naturally occurring cracks, grain roughness and knots.
• Open knots (up to 1/2”) are acceptable, but they must be structurally sound, and may not have sharp edges that can create a hazard for end user. Individual characteristics may not be specified on an order, and their consistency (or lack of) is not considered cause for replacement. Doors, drawer fronts, Finished Furniture Ends, Finished Furniture Backs and Panel Ends are only components that will be Rustic.
• All veneer panels and mouldings will be manufactured using clear material.
