Sycamore is prized for its creamy colour and silky appearance. Sycamore is generally straight grained but in places it may become curly especially near the base of the tree. The most prized sycamore is known as “rippled,” with a regular wave in the grain.

Sycamore is available in the following grades but please note that not all thicknesses are available in all the grades:
This is our standard joinery grade where only occasional knots up to 40mm diameter are accepted. The grain may be slightly angled and some colour variation is likely. Larger knots and defects will be measured out. Centre splits are accepted but a suitable reduction in measure will be applied. Accepted: Grain deviation, occasional knots up to 40mm, dark mineral streak. Other isolated defects if measured out. Not accepted: Curly grain, rot, bark pockets, excessive worm attack.
Suitable for the frames of covered furniture where strength is more important than visual appeal. Knots and defects are accepted providing there is a good proportion of cutting available. Centre splits are accepted but a suitable reduction in measure will be applied. Accepted: All knots and defects. Not accepted: Rot, excessive worm attack.
