Haussmann - Our Lotus Panel 3D is a marvel of intricacy (48 in x 48 in x 0.75 in TH). Its stunning detail will draw you in and envelope you in its beauty. In Thailand the lotus symbolizes purity in the Buddhist sense, and as such is a cherished theme. Introduce this wall panel to your décor and you; too, will succumb to its appeal.
We use a water based black stain to darken the panels, and then lightly sand the carved surfaces to create brown highlights. Then a natural wax is applied to seal the wood.
The recycled old teak wood is selected to match as close as possible in thickness.
Although they do not perfectly match in thickness the design is carved in such a way as to match closely from panel to panel. Each section is about 12 inches wide and comes with two embedded hangers for a protruding screw from your wall
Natural exotic wood products have variations in texture and finish color. This is due to the underlying natural wood tones, viewable through the translucent oil.
There will be visible marks from carving, patches from repairs, knot holes, natural inclusions, and worm holes.
There will be various separations or cracks on your piece when it arrives. These naturally occurred as the wood was dried. Over time, some continued shrinkage may accentuate existing separations or generate new ones. This does not compromise the structural performance or integrity of the wood and is considered inherent to the natural beauty of the design.
Products are natural and handmade. Sizes are just an approximation. Products are not perfectly square or flat, but are useable and reasonably flat.
We use the same wood to fill in worm holes and larger separations, but we do not fill in or repair carving marks, or natural inclusions like knots and branch growths. We sand to blend them to smooth edges and surfaces that are useable.
Wood from a tropical climate is still alive. It will change over time based on a new climate, and if you place the piece in direct sunlight, or by a heating or cooling source, small cracks will appear but will stop occurring over time.
The color will vary from the pictures depicted for every piece. The oil is the same color tone but the underlying wood color of the piece it is going on varies.
In all of these tropical woods, mold blooms that create dark stains are natural
