“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 Green Streak. Green Streak or Green Streak Stain can be caused by a couple of reasons:
-A superficial wound that penetrates the bark and outer sapwood of a tree. Mold growth grows on the wound and begins to penetrate the tree. This is why green streak in wood at some point is accompanied by an inclusion or hole that has been infected by mold. This is also far more prevalent in Big Leaf Maple simply for the fact that these trees grow in areas that can see upwards of 150 days of rain per year. They trees also have a heavy outer moss covering which is directly related to mold growth.
-A tree that has been fresh cut into boards or billets and is very high in moisture content. Generally the thicker you cut the wood the more susceptible the wood is to mold growth. This mold can be green, black, and or gray in color. In addition to the woods high moisture it’s important to note that mold growth can be unintentionally expedited if stored in areas where the relative humidity is 56% or higher.
