Stunning Ontario Cherry wood - One solid piece with bark still on. Hints of Black Onyz blends in seamlessly with dark grains within the trademark cherry wood colour.
Although keeping bark on is a an extremely labour intensive process, much more than removing it, we sometimes come across pieces that are ideal for keeping the bark on. The look, the natural rawness of the wood... makes it all worth it in the end. Some clients like it, some clients LOVE it. Its a matter of choice and style,
This beautiful board came from a tree that was cut down in the winter. Sometime when that occur, the bark of the trees stays strongly attached to the log longer. Most of the times during the milling and sanding process the bark will come of a board. In the rare circumstances that it stays in tact, JLSWD will take the extra steps, and hand finish the bark with 3 coats of a special food safe oil. After 2 years of testing, we find that this process hardens and strengthens the bark, and gives it a beautiful shine and look.
Despite our best efforts, the bark may and eventually over the years will, break apart, chip or fall off. We recommend handling these boards with care, and to hold and carry the boards by the wood (not by the bark). We feel the extra work involved in the finishing process, and the stunning look of the board on the end, is worth the effort in the end.
