FeathEffect Collection

This unique method has been developed by Elesco, it highlights the natural beauty of oak.  We recommend using a rustic grade of oak with this finishing style.  Prime oak is becoming increasingly scarce, so we developed this method to bring out the best in rustic grade boards.  We only use European long length planks for these shades   The resulting finish accentuates the colours and tones in the oak to give a truly unique look.

To demonstrate the difference the finish makes please see the before and after images below.
