Important! Customers ordering Full Stave Prime Oak and Full Stave Rustic Oak samples may not be able to see a noticeable difference between the 2 types due to the size of the samples. Knots and variation are typical for Rustic / Character grade but are more apparent on full sized worktops rather than on small sections of timber. For a better comparison between Full Stave Prime Oak and Full Stave Rustic Oak worktops please browse our gallery or the product pictures.
All samples are supplied untreated / unoiled. Prior to oiling / finishing all timbers appear a few shades paler.
Sample size: 160mm x 160mm
Finish: Untreated / Square edges / Square Corners
Bear / untreated wood appears quite pale. After oiling (or another finish of your choice), the grain will be enhanced and the colour will darken by a few shades. If you wish to preserve the natural, paler appearence of the timber please select a completely clear finish for your worktops. Although, there is a variety of wood finishes on the market, WoodWorktops recommends Danish Oil as the best treatment for your worktops. It is food safe, easy to apply and enhances all timbers beautifully.
