Wood Types

Wood sample - Ash.jpg

American Ash

Also known as White Ash or Canadian Ash, this is one of the most widely available quality hardwoods, and there's a reason why it's so popular. This wood has a beautiful grain, a light clean colour and a great texture, which is why it's widely used for items such as baseball bats or tool handles where the feel of the material is important. Ash has a medium density, so isn't nearly as heavy as Oak, but almost as strong. It's light brown colour is improved by most finishes, the wood is tough and has great shock resistance. We offer American Ash as either the main or accent material in either The Adventurer's or The Scribe's Dice Chests, with Walnut as the contrasting wood. The light colour of Ash looks great against the dark, rich brown of Walnut.

Walnut

Walnut's most striking feature is it's colour, a rich chocolate brown with hints of a purplish-black. This hardwood has a smooth, even texture, and the subtle grain is improved by most finishes. This is a stable, high quality wood that is durable without weighing too much, widely used in high quality items such as luxury furniture or gunstocks. This wood contrasts well against lighter woods, and so is offered as either the accent or main body material with Ash or Oak provided as the contrasting wood.

European Oak

Oak is probably the most famous of the hardwoods, and has been used for centuries in everything from furniture and barrels to boat building and heavy construction. Oak is stronger and slightly more durable than Ash, but considerably heavier. It has a consistent golden-brown to creamy-white colour, with a straight, exquisite grain and great texture.

We offer European Oak, also known as French Oak, as either the main or accent material in either The Adventurer's or The Scribe's Dice Chests, with Walnut as the contrasting wood. The creamy, rustic colour of Oak looks great against the dark, rich brown of Walnut.

Finishes

Danish Oil

Danish Oil gives a beautiful, smooth satin to matt finish that compliments the wood, making the grain "pop". This is best for a more natural look, but doesn't offer as much protection as a lacquer finish. Oil finishes such as Danish Oil can be easily repaired in years to come by reapplying a fresh coat straight over the old.

Lacquer

Lacquer creates a glass-like glossy layer on the surface of the wood, creating an excellent barrier against spills and staining. The lacquer itself can become scratched, but the wood underneath is protected. Some prefer the natural look of Danish Oil, although lacquer still accentuates the figure and colour of the wood beautifully.
