Difference between prime beech kitchen worktops and Rustic beech worktops

The distinction is in the overall appearance, Rustic beech worktops are put together with 40mm wide staves that vary from 60mm – 150mm in length non of the staves are put together to mach one another in grain or pattern there for giving a more rustic look, Prime beech worktops are also made up of 40mm wide staves but when these staves are put together great care is taken so that every stave is matched as close as possible in grain and pattern as to give a more uniform and structured look.
Beach wood is widely used for furniture framing and carcass construction, flooring, Beech Worktops and engineering purposes, in plywood and in household items.
Samples are taken from newly cut and sanded wood. When possible, an Oiling has been applied, but the wood will remain uncharacterized. Season and shade changes is a natural process that takes time. Your sample may not reflect how your actual top will look in 8-12 months time.
