The layered board in smoked colors has a unique feature - it is dyed through, which means that its color is not only superficial. Thanks to this, if we decide to sand the surface in the future, the color of the board remains intact! Moreover, any minor mechanical damage, such as scratches or dents, is less visible because the exposed inner layer has the same shade as the outer one. This makes the smoked board not only aesthetic, but also practical in long-term use.
