Both hobbyists and professionals often ask the question when they hear the term "exotic wood":

What is exotic wood?

All wooden carvings made of exotic wood are actually made from the wood of the rubber tree, from which caouthouc is obtained. It can be painted and stained just like any other European wood. Itis harder than pine, softer than beech. According to its fiber structure and color, it is between beech and oak.

The VK-306 wooden corbels are available in several sizes, so they can be chosen for the drawer fronts of small antique desks as well as for door fronts when renovating kitchen cabinets. The decorative mouldings for furniture are originally capital mouldings decorated with an acanthus leaf pattern. That does not mean, however, that they are not a great choice if you plan to restore antique furniture. Even furniture making is easier with the help of such a column head closing element.

It is also worth mentioning about exotic wood that before surface treatment, it is worth repairing wood defects arising from the natural material with wood paste or plaster.

Wood patch! But how?

It is quite easy to use wood putty or plaster. Simply work the material into the wood defects with a suitable spoon or spatula. After drying, all we have to do is sand the dried material flat with the surface. In the past, carpenters used a mixture of sawdust and glue instead of plaster.

In ancient times, ornamentation was a defining element in the construction of Greek temples. The Greek capitals made in this period received decorations that are still known today, such as the acanthus leaf on the closing element of the Corinthian capital. In Europe, the acanthus was popularly used as a motif in the first millennium, based on an antique pattern. Book painting used it very often, and antique forms and motifs spread with book printing. In the following centuries, the acanthus leaf was especially favored by the Baroque.
