Pakkawood is a beautiful material of exceptional quality. Pakkawood is man-made and it is produced by using intense heat and pressure to fuse multiple layers of the finest foreign and domestic hardwood veneers. The final product is strong, durable and weather and moisture resistant. Dyes are vacuum-impregnated into the wood, ensuring a vibrant and consistent color throughout the piece. Resins used during the production of Pakkawood provide a built-in finish. Because various veneers are used for Pakkawood, no two Pakkawood scales are exactly alike. The grain pattern and color of a piece is not known until the wood shaping process is complete. Pakkawood looks and feels like wood, but it is virtually waterproof and will not warp.
