Smoking wood is a treatment in which wood darkens. Depending on the length of the process, it is possible to achieve a wide range of colours, from very light beige tones to very dark, almost black. With this treatment, the mechanical properties of the wood are not lost and no debris occurs during the process.
In this way it is possible to cover up the defects of the wood that occur, for example discoloration (yellowing, blueness of the wood, etc.).
This treatment involves changing the colour of the wood not only the surface, but inside it. Therefore, wood products that have undergone this treatment can be sanded and shaped without losing the colour. For example, if it is a parquet floor, when it is mechanically damaged and scratched after a while, the colour will not change when sanding.
