Offering great wear resistance, Red Oak is a heavy wood that is very strong,
hard and stiff. The wood has a coarse texture, strong grain and is
widely available in a good selection of widths and thicknesses. Red
Oak glues, finishes and stains easily yet it doesn’t have any
of the blotching problems associated with other species
like maple. Although not suitable for exterior work, Red Oak is frequently
used in flooring, furniture, general millwork, cabinets, wooden ware, decorative
woodwork, boxes, pallets & crates.
Known for its beautiful grain character, Black Walnut is easy to work
with yet durable and shock-resistant. It is a tough wood with a straight
grain, medium density, and it shrinks & swells less than any
other wood. Offering a pleasing appearance, Black Walnut is able
to stand hard usage, holds a good edge, and is well-suited to natural
finishes. It is easily worked with tools and is used for
fine furniture, fixtures, architectural woodwork, musical instruments,
decorative panels, interior trim and flooring, cabinets, gunstocks
and interior paneling.
One of the most common woods found in entry level furniture and cabinetry,
Birch is easy to use and even textured. It is a heavy, hard and strong
wood that offers good machining properties and good shock-resisting
ability. As one of the least expensive woods to work with, Birch
is often used to make furniture, toys, boxes, baskets, doors, cabinets,
interior woodwork, crates and wooden
ware. A lightly colored wood, it stains and finishes easily but is
not resistant to decay, fungal and insect attack.
A beautiful red-brown wood with warmth & charm, Cherry is unsurpassed
in its finishing qualities due to its fine grain and smooth texture.
It is moderately heavy and hard, stiff and is a relatively stable wood
that is as strong as maple. Cherry cuts, stains and sands beautifully
and it also offers very good machining properties. However scratches
do show up easily on this wood and sunlight will darken it over time.
Cherry is used principally for furniture, fine veneer panels, architectural
woodwork, musical instruments, paneling, wooden ware and specialty
items like gunstocks. It also offers high shock-resistance and a grain
that is more subdued than some other hardwood species.
