“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 Inclusions and Tear Out.

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.

Tear Out is a process in which a machine jointer or planer during the cutting process pulls out isolated areas of wood due to either the figure or grain orientation. Certain woods are more vulnerable to tearing. Depending on where the tear out is, you may need to sand further to eliminate the tear out.
