Bog oak is a rare, exceptionally valuable timber. The veneer is light brown at the heart and darker toward the outer rings. It comes from oak trees that have lain submerged in peat bogs and marshes for up to 8,000 years. The chemical reaction between the tannins in the oak and iron sulphate in the water greatly darkened the wood and increased its density over the centuries.
