Why are there small cracks and small holes on my wood tabletop?
Solid wood has imperfections and irregularities that will vary from one slab to another, such as knots. This trait is one of the many traits that give solid wood its character and uniqueness. We fill the holes on top of the stand with epoxy to make sure that your stand is even.
We fill in the holes and cracks that could have an impact on the durability of your work surface to ensure it stays flat and stable over time. However, for ecological reasons, we do not fill shallow cracks or holes that don’t have such an impact. We also don’t fill holes or cracks under the worksurface to keep the wood in its natural state as much as possible and to avoid wasting materials.
Make sure to keep a constant temperature and humidity level, ideally between 18 and 21 ° C and between 45% and 55% for the humidity level. Variations may put your wood top under stress, which may result in cracks and curves.
Some protective pads made of synthetic rubbers can react with wood lacquer and create surface discoloration. Always test for chemical reaction on a discreet section of your desk.
