Oak heartwood umato

Common solid wood properties

Planks of wood are first selected from our oak trunk core range for manufacturing our core oak surfaces. These core planks show the typical characteristics, such as core splits and wing loads. The assorted products are then stored before drying for several days in a special chamber are subjected to a smoking process there. During this process, the wood is imbued and gain an even dark colouring. The character of old oak logs emerges.


Exposure to light

Core oak is a traditional furniture wood. Core oak umato gets slightly lighter with age. This is hardly noticeable because the change happens so slowly.


Specific wood treatment

Two layers of very dim UV water paint are applied to the intensively brushed wood. The surface is sanded down after every procedure. Wax is applied as the last layer.
