Because the beech wood is heat treated, it is insensitive to stretching and shrinking. The wood is ‘baked’ on a temperature between 180 and 220 degrees Celsius. The heat treatment causes the dark color and chic look. Another result of the treatment, is that the board is fully impregnated and therefore insensitive to water as well.
Tip for maintenance:
Treat the board after some time by rubbing it down with some oil.
