This set contains Knots, Mineral, and Fibrous Tear.

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.

Mineral Streaks are caused both naturally and unnaturally. Natural mineral streaks are caused by excessive mineral deposits or groupings in an area of the tree. Unnatural mineral streaks are caused by a boring insect which intentionally bores into the tree with the purpose of eating or feeding on the trees nutrients and by doing so the bored or tunnel portion semi-rots along with insect excrement causing a visible mark dramatically different in color.

Fibrous Tear: A term used when there are face check or splits on the front surface or face of the set or block. It is also known as grain tear. The primary cause of this is a master billet or board that we can’t manage to safely and timely expel the water in the block during the drying process. In general it’s more common in higher grade of figured billets. This is caused to the heavy grain distortion trapping water in the block causing the wood to expel it out of the face too fast.
