(Notes from the Manufacturer)
Gerstner Woods and Color Options:
The pictures on our website are a good overall
representation of the colors of the products that we sell. The photography does
utilize some lighting techniques that can make them appear slightly lighter in
tone. Due to the nature of wood and the variety of grain patterns in even a
single piece of wood, all products will have slight variations from the color
shown. The exposure of wood to light will change their original color, due to
this fact, we cannot guarantee color matches on units purchased separately. If
you have a product you would like matched we would need a drawer or some other
piece from your chest to aid us in matching your new chest to the older one.
See below for explanations of our various woods and colors available. Custom
colors and some color matching is also available, contact us for more
Golden Oak (This item is in Production and not available yet)
Golden Oak products have a medium to dark golden stain
color. This color is similar to the natural aging process that occurs in chests
that we see over 40 years old. This golden color gives them an antique look
that brings out the richness of the grain patterns. We only use quarter-sawn
white oak, which is renowned for its stability and unique "tiger
striping" grain. From hardwood flooring to whiskey barrels, fine furniture
to tool chests, Quarter-sawn White Oak has been a standard construction
hardwood of the finest craftsmen for 100’s of years. Your new oak chest can
darken over time.
American Cherry products have a light to medium fruitwood
colored stain which accents and highlights the natural grain patterns of Cherry
wood. Cherry wood has a beautiful
flowing and curvy grain pattern that includes naturally occurring “mineral
streaks” and “pitting”. The mineral
streaks, which can show as darker grain lines and the pitting, which are like
tiny knots are part of the natural character and beauty of Cherry. As Cherry ages, it darkens over time adding
additional depth and tone to the color of the wood. Grain patterns and other
characteristics of the wood add to the elegance and uniqueness of each Cherry
product we make.
