Other names: common plane tree, maple leaf plane
Color: light brown (natural)
Comments: Tree very widespread in Europe, especially in the south. This tree reminds us of childhood memories, very often it was present in the playgrounds. We find the plane tree on the edges of roads, avenues and parks, it is the tree par excellence of the alignment. There is too little tree in nature nowadays, it can peak at more than 55 meters (usually 25 meters) and be several centuries old (bicentennial nowadays). It is a moderately heavy wood (0.6-0.8), not very durable. The plane tree has many brown meshes, larger than that of the beech.
If you are a fan of ancient Greece, know that the famous Spartans use the plane tree as a natural shade during their training.
Application: Home furnishings, rifle butt, precision instruments, household utensils and toys.
Stabilized Wood : Stabilizing a material literally consists in making it more stable, one could say in most cases that this operation consists in densifying it, using a resin. By a process that we keep secret, we penetrate a resin and/or color pigments to the heart.
We thus obtain a more homogeneous and often more aesthetic material because the resin (and/or the pigments) highlights the designs of the stabilized part.
In addition to the aesthetic aspects, this process makes it possible to make usable materials that had only low mechanical qualities. Thus a "heated" or heavily damaged wood regains nobility.
