Wood

The Southern German oak which dk3 uses is approximately 140 years old when felled. Because of the reddish soil and height of the area (approximately 600 meters above sea level) a very light oak is achieved. After cutting in the sawmill the wood is "put on sticks", a net is placed over it and it is set to dry for approx. 12 months facing north, so that air can circulate and the tree matures throughout. Finally the wood is oven dried for another 8 weeks, after which the wood has a moisture content of approx. 6.5% and is ready to be made into dk3 furniture.
