Due to inherently unique qualities of wood, variations such as grain, color, grain pattern and unique markings must be expected. Our samples serve as a guide only; we do our best to match the samples and the true quality of the wood. Color, texture, and graining variations can occur in products like leather, glass, plating, and fabric.
