This is the real thing. Quality workmanship. Quality finishes. Each bamboo switch plate is stained with a high grade dye and then sealed with 2 coats of satin laqcuer finish.
Wood is a natural material, with variations in color, texture and figure. These variations are influenced by the natural growing process and are uncontrollable by the woodworker. The color of wood within a tree varies between the sapwood (the outer layers of the tree which continue to transport sap), which is usually lighter in color than the “heartwood” (the inner layers in which the cells have become filled with natural deposits). Various species produce different grain patterns (figures), which influence the selection process. There will be variations of grain patterns within any selected species. The architectural woodworker cannot select solid lumber cuttings within a species by grain and color in the same manner in which veneers may be selected. Color, texture and grain variations will occur in the finest architectural woodworking.
