UMBER from the BARK SIDE collection by reSAWN TIMBER co. features a textured surface on our original cut white oak. Original cut is a way of cutting the log that incorporates plain sawn, rift sawn and quarter sawn grain patterns and all grades and character marks into the final product. common character marks include knots, checks, streaks and worm holes. UMBER is prefinished with our hardwax oil which is natural, non-toxic and 100% VOC-free. our hardwax oil produces a durable, matte finish that respects the natural look and feel of the wood.
the BARK SIDE collection features a compilation of six nature-inspired designs in colors ranging from a crisp, snowy white to a dark, dusky gray. available in solid or engineered wood planks, these designs can be used for flooring and wall cladding. the name of the collection and the textured surface of the material was inspired by the horizontal ridges, known as lenticels, that are seen on the bark of species such as birch and black cherry.
