Kiln Dried Wood Disclaimer Here at Central American Wood Depot, we take pride in drying all of our live edge slabs down to 6-8% moisture content. This process helps minimize the natural tendency that wood has to move and decay. Wood slabs can react to the moisture content in the air depending on your location and what time of year it is. In a sense, wood is actually a living and breathing object that reacts to the environment it lives in. This naturally occurring movement can cause slight bows, cups, twists, and small cracking to occur in your slabs. This is normal. The most common cause of this is large swings in humidity. We recommend keeping your wood in a space that has a humidity level between 35% and 50% and maintaining a steady air flow. Storing your slab(s) in an environment outside of these levels, or where they are exposed to sudden temperature and humidity changes can result in significant movements and warping and will not be considered a valid claim with Central American Wood Depot.

Preventative Action If you order a table from Central American Wood Depot, it is possible that it will be shipped to you with temporary struts attached to the bottom. We do this to help keep your piece as flat as possible all the way through the shipping process. These can be easily removed once you are ready to install your top to your base. The best way to minimize and prevent major wood movements in finished products is by using a solid and supportive base. On larger table tops, we recommend using a table base or leg design that provides a strut-like structure that supports the width of the table top. We do not recommend using a four-corner leg design, as this can result in your table bowing and cupping. If we do not build your base or provide you with struts, we cannot guarantee this from happening. If we are finishing your table top, you may request matching table struts to be installed to the bottom at an additional fee.

Wood Care The best way to clean finished products by Central American Wood Depot is with a soft towel or cloth and water. If necessary, you may use a mild soap as well. If your piece has been finished with the Rubio Monocoat Pure 2C Oil, you can also use their “Surface Care” cleaning solution. We do recommend avoiding harsh cleaning products that can lift or alter the finish. When using hot items, always use a coaster or trivet to protect your surface. Extended exposure to water or direct sunlight can also cause damage to your slab.
