“Season Checking” or cracks are a natural characteristic of all rustic furniture. This happens naturally during the drying process of the logs or timbers. These cracks or season checks will vary from log to log and from timber to timber. Some cracks will be wider than others, and some will be hardly noticeable at all. Typically, the larger the diameter of the log or timber, the larger the cracks will be. Season checking does not affect the structural integrity of the furniture made from it. All our rustic furniture products are covered by a lifetime warranty. This is a warranty that protects you from defects in material and workmanship. This is not considered a defect and is not subject to this warranty.
The cracks in the wood tend to be radial, or from the center of the log, cracking outward in one direction only and often spiraling around the log or timber. It very rarely cracks through the entire log or timber. This adds natural character and beauty to every piece of rustic furniture.
