RUSTIC OAK

Rustic oak (in Latin: Quercus cerris) is an incredibly hard oak timber,which has a unique and particularly coarse structure which gives it the rustic look exclusive to Bodahl Moebler. This structure is underlined and accentuated during the woodworking process. The wood is worked by hand, giving each piece of furniture its own distinct look. Consequently, no two pieces are identical. The hardness of rustic oak makes it hard-wearing and long lasting.

With its hollows, knots and grain, rustic oak has the most pronounced structure of all of the wood types used by Bodahl Moebler.

During the woodworking process, the furniture is given a variety of stains, producing an array of colours without detracting from the wood’s rustic appearance. To finish, a matt varnish is applied to give the surface extra protection.

WILD OAK

Like rustic oak, wild oak (in Latin: Quercus robur) is an incredibly hard species of wood. It is hard-wearing, and long lasting. However, the structure of wild oak is less pronounced than that of rustic oak because wild oak has fewer cracks and knots. Depending on the design, the Bodahl furniture collection includes a variety of qualities of wild oak. The coarse oak structure and the finer oak structure. The coarser oak may have superficial irregularities, cracks and knots – also at the ends and edges – and there may be colour differences in the bonded wood planks. Consequently, no two pieces are identical.

The finer oak structure has considerably fewer irregularities, cracks and knots, making it more suitable for lighter designs.

During the woodworking process, the furniture is given a variety of stains, producing an array of colours without detracting from the wood’s rustic appearance. To finish, a matt varnish is applied to give the surface extra protection.

WALNUT

The dark, elegant play of colours in European walnut, with its conspicuous wood grain, gives the furniture an iridescent, vivid appearance. European walnut is dusky – almost chocolate brown in colour – varying widely from dark to light. This means that the planks used in the furniture can vary greatly in both colour and visual texture, giving the pieces their individual and unique look. Consequently, no two pieces are identical. Walnut is hard-wearing and has a stylish sheen with a smooth, even surface without cracks and knots.

During processing, the furniture is only given oil to provide the surface with extra protection. Consequently, it is easy to freshen up the table by applying a new layer of oil.

ASH

Ash is a light colored wood by nature, and yellowish white in colour. It has a striking, decorative look, although without the knots and grains naturally present in rustic oak and wild oak. This means that the planks used in the ash furniture can vary in both colour and visual texture, giving the pieces their individual and unique appearance. Consequently, not two pieces are identical. Ash is a hardwood, making it extremely suitable for furniture.
