Solid Hardwood Lumber

Note that the woods presented below are representative of either solid wood or veneer-core products.

Cherry

Cherry is a fine-grained hardwood that ranges in color tone from near white through pinks and reds. Its subtle grain patterns are enhanced by localized color variations of green, pink, or yellow streaks with occasional flecks and gum pockets. Cherry is known and expected to darken over time with exposure to light, creating a rich and beautiful patina.

Clear Cherry

Hard Maple

Hard Maple is hard, strong and a heavy wood. It is highly resistant to wear and is also an excellent choice. The wood has a fine, uniform texture and is generally straight grained. The tightly swirled grain is very muted and subtle, for this reason natural and lightly colored stains are popular. The sapwood displays a creamy white hue with a tinge of reddish brown, and the heartwood ranges from light to dark reddish brown.

Red Oak

Red Oak is exceptionally hard, has excellent resistance to wear, and is a popular choice. Straight grained with a coarse texture, this strong wood has sapwood that is white to light brown, while the heartwood displays a light reddish hue.

Veneer Core Plywood

A1 Grade
This is the highest grade veneer core ply that is produced. Used for architectural paneling, quality furniture, cabinetry or any other application where the best appearance is needed. We use veneer core plywood.

Kay Core – Veneer Core Plywood – Columbia Forest Products 
This is the ultimate furniture grade type of plywood. The grain is laid and bonded running at right angles to adjacent plies causing the grain to lock reducing shrinkage in width. It gives strength in all directions. The panel does have an overall grain running lengthwise. This grain direction provides the panel with its greatest strength.

Advantages

Renewable Resource – A natural product from a renewable resource.

Beautiful Grain – The smooth substrates enhance the beauty of the hardwood veneer and dramatically improves the finishing results.

Strength – Unique cross-layered structure makes it pound for pound stronger than steel.

Efficiency – More of the log is used in this product than lumber. Thus there is less waste.
