Wood types

SPEKVA offer products in all kinds of different wood species with a wide range of dimensions and surface treatments. We are driven by our love of wood, our passion for good craftsmanship and our pride in fulfilling the dreams of our customers. All our woods are purchased as AB grade and carefully sorted up to AA grade. In the process of sorting and assembling wood our quality control sorts out any errors before they are highlighted by further treatment.

We are particularly fond of the hardest wood types as they are perfect for tabletops and furniture built to last for many years. From time to time the market experiences shortages and up to six months delivery on the best types of wood. In order to keep our customers from being affected by this we continously purchase and store a wide selection of high quality wood in a perfectly tempered building adjacent to our production facility.

Colour maturing

Newly constructed items made from solid wood will mature and the colour will become more even as time passes. The colour maturing depends on the type of wood, the surface treatment and how much light the worktop is exposed to.

In the beginning some worktops are quite spangled with light and dark staves among each other. Other worktops seem much lighter than those you see in kitchen exhibitions. Some seem to be so fresh in colour that you may be in doubt as to whether you have received the right product. This applies in particular to wood types like Iroko, Wengé and Cherry.

The time it takes for the wood to mature to its final colour can vary from six months to several years, but the process depends on the amount of sunlight, daily wear and maintenance (treatment with oil or soap).

Due to this colours seen from receipt of your first delivery in comparison to second one will usually be quite different. This difference will fade after some time.  

The best material and our great craftsmanship, 
ensures you with a 30 year warranty!

Refined wood with a unique structure – a new generation of surfaces

Engineered wood

Fast growing and eco friendly. This type of timber is fully Fsc certified and comes from man-made responsibly grown plantations in New Zealand.

This timber is the most eco friendly available in todays market, the tree grows to full maturity in approx. 24 years. Unlike oak & Walnut etc, where 80–100+ years is the average age before maturity. All worktops are made in royal only (long continual staves), this is the most premium of all constructions.

To seal the fibres of the timber, and turn it from a soft to a hard wood (same density as oak) proteins (amino acids) and colours are pressure treated into the timber. The colouring comes from ground down flower petals. Amino acids are consumed in our daily diets, making the compound totally harmless to mankind.

The colouring runs throughout the timber, so worktops/ breakfast bars etc can be cut on-site, sanded, scratched repaired and no discolouring will be visible.

Bavarian safari

Origin: New Zealand

A golden brown wood variety (radiata pine).

Surface treatment

STAIN + NATURAL LUXURY OIL
Luxury Oil Black and Luxury Oil Mocca is a surface treatment completed in two steps, finished at the factory before shipment. The stain penetrates the first few millimetres of the surface, which gives that lovely depth and richness to the wood, however this is effectively only skin deep, and the colour does not run throughout the solid wood. General maintenance is achieved by only using the neutral oil supplied in the service box.

Scratches and damage that penetrate through the stain, showing glimpses of the natural wood colour, can only be repaired with the enclosed touch-up repair-kit. It is not possible/recommended to sand the affected area on a stained worktop.

N.B. Stained worktops are NOT recommended in places with heavy and hard use. We do NOT recommend sinks in stained worktops.

MOCCA LUXURY OIL
The following types of wood can be delivered with mocca luxury oil surface treatment:

Ash + Heart Ash + Oak + Oak Plank 80 mm

BLACK LUXURY OIL
The following types of wood can be delivered with black luxury oil surface treatment:

Ash + Heart Ash + Oak + Oak Plank 80 mm

Tongue and groove

With 50 years of experience, our dedication to producing the finest is seen in every detail

The best material and our great craftsmanship, ensures you with a 30 year warranty. It certainly has already been shown that the quality and design are some of our hallmarks. When you decide to invest in a product from SPEKVA you can be sure that every little detail has been carefully selected, inspected and manufactured by hand.

We place great emphasis on craftsmanship and for decades have used a special method to join wood staves. Instead of gluing the staves flat side together, which is the most common, we join the staves by tongue and groove which are pressed together then glued. This allows up to 40% more surface area for the glue to bond, which prevents cracks from appearing later in time. 
 
This method together with the best raw material provides an incredibly strong construction and a very long warranty of 30-years.
