Buffed Steel is only used on Axis & Radian Tables. We lightly sand over the inherent character of 1/2″ thick, hot rolled steel to highlight its’ individual character. During processing at the mill, molten Steel is passed through rollers to flatten & shape the bar of Steel . The rollers leave unpredictable character on the Steel surface, often in a linear pattern. We rub over and highlight this character with our regimented scratching but each leg plate will retain the underlying character from the hot rolling process. The bottom of leg plates have a Cork barrier applied. Hand rubbed Oil finish sealed with a Clear Satin Conversion Varnish finish.
