Crafted of kiln-dried hickory logs, the Fireside Lodge Furniture Hickory Open Sofa Table is individually handcrafted to add rustic appeal to your home. This exquisite wooden console table is designed for strength, and the kiln-drying process increases its expected lifespan. Worm tracking, "checking," and old nail holes are considered bonus features that are treasured by many, as they tell the story of the trees' natural origins. This table is available in several finish options, all protected by a clear lacquer finish. Try this table in your foyer, entryway, or landing!
What is "Checking?"
Our hickory logs are kiln dried and our cedar logs are air dried to perfection, yet it's only natural that every log will "check". "Checking" is the natural drying process that every log goes through to release its moisture. It is common for your logs to "check" during autumn when homes' furnaces begin to run, making the air a little drier than it is throughout the spring and summer months. Typically, each log will develop one primary "check" that goes to the center of the log. Occasionally there will be a secondary "check". But never fear! The "check" stops at the core or center of the log and does not affect the lifespan or structural integrity of our fine rustic furnishings.
