Maple

Maple has a generally more uniform appearance with large swirls and less tightly knit grain. It is suitable for contemporary interiors and smaller spaces as the grain of the wood is less visually distracting. It also requires more skill to work with as it is a fast growing wood and the tension in the wood can present challenges. The end result though is that Maple provides a beautiful finished look.

Rift Cut White Oak

Rift cut White Oak has a darker and browner undertone than the Red Oak, it is also a harder wood with a finer grain. Rift cut means that the lumber was cut from the centre part of the tree where the grain is the straightest and finest. This means a lower yield which in turn makes this a more expensive wood. Most often seen with a lighter stain or white wash, this wood is a designer favourite.

Wormy Maple

This Maple is recognizable by its distinctive character of bluish tinged streaking and pinholes which lend a rustic look. The markings are a result of the Ambrosia beetle which bores its way through the trees leaving the wood with the markings. The structural hardness and integrity of the wood is unaffected; it is solely a visual result.

Pine

Pine is a softer knotty wood with lots of character.
