Regardless the structure type, we take our time to catch the beauty that wood has to offer to its highest degree. Each strip composing our panels is individually picked and carefully selected, so that their alternating pattern will result in the best visual effect.
As there are no two strips truly identical, so there are no two panels exactly alike. Every wood panel is, indeed, unique, with its own individuality. We offer edge-grain panels with the following dimensions:
3/4", 1", 1.5", 2" and 3" thick
26.5" and 36.5" wide or customized.
2', 3', 4', 5', 6', 8', 10' and 12' long or customized. The strip's width is typically 1-5/8". In the finger jointed panels the lengths of the strips vary randomly from 8" to 18". Customized panels are also available. Please inquire specifically.

Top only or top&bottom radius (1/8", 1/4", 1/2" or customized) available upon request. Please call us for a complete list of available edge profiles.

The 1.5" and 2" thick panels are available in both finger-jointed and full strip versions. All the others come in finger-jointed configuration only.
