Solid wood routered with an interior slatwall channel to create a natural looking vertical display surface. This design does not incorporate a metal channel insert. Yet note the direction of the wood grain and rings. Though wood, the channel shoulders could easily shear. So again, know you slatwall and your application. And because all slatwall is different, and some has metal channel inserts, get samples of your slatwall hooks to test before your buy. *****
