Our choice of sliced wood finishes is the result of careful selection, and we only use the very best part of the wood. We use a two-component water-based varnish to protect all of its qualities and natural properties such as its colour, grain and knotting. This also adds a touch of authentic beauty. Wood is a natural material and thus there may be different grain patterns or the colour shades may vary on different parts. Interna8 does however perform very rigours checks on its finishes and wood bonding as part of its production cycle, to reduce any problems to an absolute minimum. Over time, the initial colour of the wood may change; this is a guarantee of the beauty of this natural material and should never be considered a defect. For this reason, we do recommend positioning new units next to units bought in the past, as they are more than likely to be a slightly different colour. This is because the older unit will have been exposed to light which will have altered its colour, due to it being photosensitive.
