LOCK HAVEN by reSAWN TIMBER co. features plain sawn, character grade, newly harvested HICKORY prefinished with our hardwax oil.
Hickory is one of the hardest domestic woods available with a Janka rating of 1820. PLAIN SAWN boards are produced by cutting tangentially to a tree’s growth rings producing the familiar “cathedral” or “flame” pattern on the board face. The annual growth rings are generally at a 0° – 30° angle to the face of the board.
The grain pattern of hickory is mostly straight and open, but some boards have burled or curly grain. The heartwood of hickory is tan or reddish; while the sapwood is white to cream, with fine brown lines creating a pleasing mix of colors.
Our natural oil is non-toxic and 100% VOC-free and produces a durable, matte finish that respects the natural look and feel of the wood.
