“Defect” – A term used for an item that has a heavy imperfection or defects that are inside of the template and more widespread, potentially avoidable during the building process.
This set contains Knots and Inclusions.
Knots/Pin Knots are tiny limbs that stretch out from the trees heartwood attempting to create a new limb. These knots regardless of size generally travel from or near the center of the tree out toward the outer sapwood and bark. Many times pin knots can also become included.
Inclusions – Holes that have penetrated the wood that over time exposed to oxygen have darkened in color. Although rare inclusions can occur naturally as a form or irregular grain spacing, voids caused by heavy figure causing heavy grain disruption and ultimately small pockets that become infected and grow with the tree in depth over the years. Inclusions are also caused by an outside source. These are some of the causes of inclusions: Insect boring or tunneling, bird peck, tree knots or limbs that never materialize, and tree bruising caused by weather “windfall” penetration of the trees bark and outer sapwood.
