 Wood Species

So many different species to choose from!

Our cabinet making artisans select only the finest furniture grade wood from the most reputable local and North American suppliers. Choose from trendsetting new materials like bamboo to traditional classics like oak to reflect your personal tastes and get the look you want.

 RED BIRCH

A medium dense hardwood with a fine, uniform grain.

RUSTIC CHERRY

Regular cherry with knots, light and dark spots, worm holes and splits left in the wood to impart a rustic look.

 CHERRY

Hardwood with color variations, mineral streaks, fine pin holes and pitch pockets. The variations are more apparent in natural or light stains. When exposed to light, cherry can darken significantly over time.

 

 RED OAK

The strongest hardwood in our lineup. Its unique and distinctive grain pattern varies from straight to arched and pointed.

 HICKORY

A heavy, strong hardwood, with pronounced variation in the grain pattern and color which can run from white to dark brown. Random specks, mineral streaks and knots are common. Knots are stabilized in production.

 MAPLE

A heavy, strong hardwood resistant to shocks, with a closed, uniform grain. This light-colored wood may darken slightly over time.

 RUSTIC ALDER

A very soft hardwood. Its rustic look comes from a fine grain with knots, light and dark spots, worm holes and splits throughout each piece.

 KNOTTY PINE

Soft wood with the rustic look of a straight open grain. May have visible knots, worm holes, splits, and light and dark spots.

 QUARTER SAWN RED OAK

Known for its distinctive “ray fleck” in the wood grain, quarter sawn red oak owes its unique appearance to the way the wood is cut. The result is an elegant, straight-grained look that sets it apart from the more common “cathedral grain.”

 BLACK WALNUT

A relatively lightweight hardwood renowned for its beautiful grain character, creamy white sapwood, and rich chocolate brown heartwood.

 CARAMELIZED BAMBOO

Appreciated for its clean airy look and valued as a sustainable, environmentally friendly hardwood, our bamboo comes in a light caramel shade due to a special heating process.

CHERRY

Hardwood with color variations, mineral streaks, fine pin holes and pitch pockets. The variations are more apparent in natural or light stains. When exposed to light, cherry can darken significantly over time.
