Skip-peeled means the man astride the log peeling the bark off with a draw knife, which looks like a large vegetable peeler with 2 handles, leaves a little of the dark brown paper-thin cambium layer, which carries nutrients and water around the tree, on the log here and there. Clean-peeled, which runs a little more, means he gets it all off. Skip-peeled seems to be the more popular with log afficionados because it has more "character". Clean-peeled is preferred by those who don't want quite so much "rustic".
This is finished work. Hand-peeling the logs gives the outside many flat surfaces, like the facets of a diamond. Machine-peeling produces a smooth, perfectly-round look. The logs are then sanded and polished by master woodworkers to bring out the individual beauty of each log; then coated with one coat of clear sealer and 2 coats of furniture grade urethane clear lacquer, which is impervious to most things folks spill on it.
ALL LOG FURNITURE HAS CRACKS IN THE LOGS. As you're looking at the end of a log, the crack extends from the center of the circle to 1 point on the outer circle. At the outer circle your typical crack is about 1/16 to 1/4 inch wide, more or less, and may go all the way down the log. This is a natural consequence of the log's having dried standing dead in place for a year or two before the furniture guys cut it down. We have never seen a crack get any bigger than it was when it arrived and have never had any complaints of a structural nature. The maker calls them "checks" and log afficionados call them "character" (we call them "cracks"). The point is - if this would horrify you, it would be better not to order.
We know you'll love this beautiful log furniture! We have it in our homes and it's quite a conversation piece
