reclaimed Timber Character levels
the Bombora classifications for timber character levels and tonal variations
At Bombora Custom Furniture, as well as all aspects of the design of your piece, you can choose the type, tone and character level in the timber. This can greatly alter the style of your piece. The aspects you need to consider when choosing your timber is such things as the natural and recycled character level, the tone and whether you want the timber to be a similar or variable in tones. Here are some examples.
Reclaimed Wood Character Level
We are referring to natural timber features such as sap lines, sap pockets, and flecks (as in the far right piece in the high image) and the recycled features such as nail holes, iron staining and bolt holes. The level of character in the timber you choose can take the style of your piece from clean danish to refined industrial style all the way to rustic!
Reclaimed Timber Tonal Variation
The variation of the tone of the timber used in your piece of your furniture can greatly effect the overall look and feel of your piece. Here are some examples of what we would classify and low, medium and high levels of tone variation in the timber.
