Products with a "Classic" Ebony finish have a stain applied to both the beech core and the face veneer which gives the products a uniform walnut color (very little contrast in color between the beech core and the walnut veneer). Anilinedyes and water based low VOC varnishes are used to produce a finish where the natural grain texture of the wood is clearly visable with uniform color throughout.
Natural Beech veneers have only a clear finish applied. The beech core has its contrasting light and dark cross ply highlighted with the more uniform subtle beech face veneer . Natural finishes have a clear top coat where the natural variations in the color and the grain of the wood are clearly visible. No stain or color enhancements are used.
