Variations in Wood Products
As with all natural wood products there will be some slight variation in color, texture, and finish color. This is mainly due to the underlying natural wood tones, which the translucent oil is applied over, creating a truly unique functional work of art. Products could have visible marks from tools used, patches from small repairs, knot holes, natural inclusions, and/or worm holes.
There will be various separations or cracks on your piece when it arrives. These naturally occurred as the wood was dried and shrank. Over time, some continued shrinkage may accentuate existing separations or generate new ones. This does not compromise the structural performance or integrity of the wood and is considered inherent to the natural beauty of the design.
The wood is from a tropical climate, and like all wood, is still "alive". It will change some over time based on your climate, and whether you place the piece in direct sunlight, or by a heating or cooling source, like in front of an air vent. Small cracks may appear but this is normal and will stop occurring over time. Simply rub in a natural neutral color wood oil to seal again. Of course, if a major crack develops that threatens the structural integrity of the product; we will gladly exchange it within the first 30 days.
All of our products are natural and handmade. Therefore sizes are just an approximation but are generally within plus or minus 1/4". We cannot guarantee the products are perfectly square or flat. We do create useable and reasonably flat surfaces while highlighting the natural wood inclusions and hand carved surfaces. We do not fill in or repair carving marks, or natural inclusions like knots and branch growths. Instead we sand to blend them in and assure smooth edges and surfaces that are useable. On some products we will use the same wood to fill in old worm holes and such.
The color, after finish is applied, will vary from the pictures depicted for every single piece. This is because the oil is the same tone but the color of the underlying wood of the piece it is going on varies. Monkey Pod wood (Acacia, Rain Tree), like all woods, has varying tones of browns in the reddish to black ranges depending on its age. The new growth or "white wood" ages from white to yellowish changing to light yellowish browns over time.
After panels are carved from several pieces, the wood shrinks as it dries. When the panels are placed back together they may not line up exactly as carved. We will joint and sand to close the gaps and then blend the design as well as possible with hand chisels. There will be some slight variances where two panels join.
