Something amazing happens when you desaturate wood to the point where color disappears and you are left with a cross section showing the basic architecture of the tree. There is actually nothing basic about it; The complex grain structure, gnarled disruptions of branches protruding in the form of knots, swirls and starbursts from fungus and bug attacks, mineral streaks and flecking. In a single board we could be looking at 40-50 years of life. As if that isn’t amazing enough, the appearance of an ax mark covered up by years of new growth brings into sharp relief the complex history of trees and their relationship with us. In Bone White we try to distill each of our favorite species of wood into its basic structural form. White is also an amazing floor color if you ask us.
