Elm and Beech Timbers

Some absolutely stunning timbers destined to become part of the new wedge wine rack series. The single piece is a piece of elm. The double shot is beech and elm from the front and back.

The grain pattern in the elm just takes my breath away! The beech has a more even coloring and grain and is hard as a rock!

Adding to the interest of the elm in the middle pic – the incisor marks and the bruising caused by the process are visible on the edges. Those marks are made by 3/4” teeth on a drum that are used to penetrate the outer skin of the timber to improve absorption during the treatment process – and we should point out that because our timbers are culls – none of them ever get treated so they are creosote-free.
