This wood has a beautiful olive color to it, and it is sometimes used as a substitute for Chesnut because the grain matches almost perfectly when stained. We love the smell of this wood as it is being cut! The whole shop smells like menthol cough drops! It is one of those makes you feel good woods! History states that Sir Walter Raleigh took sassafras back to England from Virginia. In what were called the Great Sassafras Hunts from 1602-1603, ships were sent from England to collect the roots. Sassafras roots then were converted into a tonic that smelled like root beer and supposedly kept its drinkers youthful and healthy. (Tinytimbers.com) All of our wood plates are finished as the wood grew on the tree. No stains or dyes. Just the beautiful wood as nature intended it. No two plates are ever alike and the color may change slightly over the years because they are real wood! They are finished with a super hard clear finish for unlimited durability!
It's like furniture for your walls!
All of our plates are shipped finished, and ready to use! "We never charge for the finish"!
