Other

This piece has a popular blonde finish that often works well in a contemporary setting.

Quarter sawn oak is more expensive than through and through sawn boards, but is more stable and shows the medullary rays that are characteristic of it. Quarter sawn oak has always been popular for quality furniture, panelling, etc., particularly for Arts and Crafts pieces.
