HICKORY

Hickory sapwood (the outer rim of wood, directly behind the bark) is white to cream-colored, while the heartwood (wood in the center of the trunk) is tan or reddish brown. The extreme contrast in color between the heart and the sapwood makes hickory easy to differentiate from other wood species. Many consumers like the appearance of contrasting bands of color. If you do not like the light and dark woods mixed together you probably should steer clear of this choice in wood species. It is a dramatic wood style with inevitable color contrasts that are part of the nature of this wood.

WALNUT

Walnut heartwood (wood in the center of the trunk) can range from a lighter pale brown to a dark chocolate brown with darker brown streaks. Color can sometimes have a grey, purple, or reddish cast. The sapwood (the outer rim of wood, directly behind the bark) is pale yellow-gray to nearly white. Grain is usually straight, but some variation in grain patterns, such as burls and crotches can also be found. Walnut has a medium texture and moderate natural luster. The combination of sapwood and heartwood makes for a beautiful and lively showpiece.

In contrast, the sapwood (the outer rim of wood, directly behind the bark) is creamy white. The wood has a straight-grain, a fine, uniform, satiny and smooth texture, and naturally may contain brown pith flecks and small gum pockets.

MAPLE

Maple wood has a fine, uniform texture with generally straight grain, but variations such as birdseye, tiger, flame, curly, wavy, rippled or fiddleback grain can occur. It’s light color, smooth grain, and strength make maple a popular choice among woodworkers of all types. In its natural state, it can totally brighten a room, yet stained maple looks equally gorgeous and can be dressed up to suit any preferred style. Maple is often chosen as a Butcher Block cutting surface because of its durability and strength.

RECLAIMED VINTAGE BARN OAK

The Antique Oak we used is reclaimed from historic buildings, such a barns and industrial revolution-era mill buildings. It is weathered and worn, filled with cracks, holes, and plenty of character. Here at our shop we take great pride in filling all of the nail holes, cracks and crevices with black epoxy. This helps to maintain the integrity of the tops while showcasing the antique feel of each vintage board. It also makes for a smoother, durable and more user friendly finish for our customers to enjoy.
