BIRCH PLANK FLOORING

Birch has been used to make everything from beer to toothpicks. This wood is relatively straight-grained with a fine uniform texture. Birch is hard, strong and shock resistance, with good bending properties. Generally common to the Eastern US and Great Lakes states; its primary uses include furniture, flooring, millwork, panel doors, kitchen cabinets, turnings and toys.

BEECH PLANK FLOORING

Beech trees are known as “Mother of the Forest” and commonly grow in the Eastern United States. This species has excellent nailing and gluing properties, and is classified as heavy, hard, strong, and highly resistant to shock and abrasive wear. Beech is generally straight-grained with a close uniform texture and offers itself to moderate movement in temperature deviations. It is often used for furniture, doors, flooring, millwork, paneling, brush handles, woodenware, bending stock, toys and turnings. It is particularly suitable for food and liquid containers since there is no odor or taste.

CHERRY PLANK FLOORING

Cherry’s natural beauty and distinguishing qualities make it command to be admired. Its uniform, straight grain, satiny, smooth texture tells you why the Shaker’s and Stickley Furniture choose cherry for their furniture needs. Typically, cherry becomes richer with age and exposure to light and is used for fine furniture, cabinet making, flooring, mouldings, millwork, kitchen cabinets, paneling, doors, boat interiors, musical instruments, turnings, and carvings

MAPLE PLANK FLOORING

Maple has been a favorite of American furniture makers since early Colonial days and is a standard for cutting boards because of its toughness and “no taste” to food qualities. The coloring traits of Hard Maple are something to behold with the varying amounts of darker brown heartwood contrasting with the sapwood creamy white. This wood is highly resistant to abrasion and wears flawlessly with excellent strength properties. Maple finds uses in flooring (domestic, ballroom & gymnasium), furniture, paneling, kitchen cabinets, worktops, tabletops, butcher blocks, toys, kitchenware, millwork, stairs, handrails, mouldings, and doors.

A note of worthiness, the Native Americans used this wood to craft their spears and at the turn of the century women’s shoe heels were made from maple.

RED OAK PLANK FLOORING

The Latin work for Red Oak means “A Fine Tree” which transforms into America’s term for: railroad ties, plows, looms, barrels, furniture and floors. This species is one of the most abundant grown in the Northeastern hardwood forests. Red Oak is similar to white oak but has a slightly less pronounced figure due to the smaller rays and is mostly straight-grained, with a course texture. Red Oak machines well, can be stained to a good finish; is hard and heavy, maintains medium bending strength and stiffness, and has a high crushing strength while being wear resistant.

WHITE OAK PLANK FLOORING

White oak grows abundantly throughout the eastern United States from the South, up through the Appalachian area, northward into areas of southeastern Canada. Oak is the most widely available hardwood with White Oak second to Red Oak in abundance. White Oak is heavy, hard and very strong and its distinctive course, straight grain has longer rays than red oak. White Oak is a popular selection for flooring, stair parts, architectural pulpits, pews, furniture and cabinetry. Its water resistant characteristics have made it a preferred choice for ship timbers, barrels, paneling and decorative veneers.
