Variable Oak

We are currently discussing the quality of oak with our chosen door supplier. So far it seems very variable and we have had some problems with both damages that required repairs and poor quality boards. A great shame as the joinery seemed initially very good. The picture shows the huge variation in grain with the door on the right being the sort one would expect (we like that door) and the doors on the left showing “pine like” open grain and stains (3 horizontal stains on one board, second board in, on the far left door). Pretty disappointing but we shall keep you posted on how the company reacts and do a full and fair review once the company has had a chance to respond.
