Sonoma County's sustainable culture is on full display with this locally sourced oak that was laminated together and made into planks of various colors and textures. The color difference comes from both the natural oak variations, the wine stains, and the toasting done by the vintners prior to being used for flavor.
Once laminated, we preserve the textured surface by sawing off the "jacket boards" and using them for various wall and furniture applications. These jacket boards are not only easy to identify from their texture but their color which resembles the wines they were used in.
The remaining planks come in one of three layouts: edge grain, cross-laminated, and end grain. Edge grain planks are great for tables and furniture while end grain patterns are friendly to a knife's sharp edge, making great cutting boards.
