Wood Species Info
We are proud to offer five different American wood species. Here are the differences between them. Find more customer photos of each species in our gallery.
- White Pine $ - White Pine was our first ever wood species that we built with. Sourced from the Northeast, this is one the most common and widely used timbers in the US. Pine is a softwood, meaning it can dent easily and distress overtime, helping create its rustic farmhouse look and appeal. Our pine table tops are solid wood and can expand & contract. Gaps between boards may occur between different seasons throughout the year. With its straight and knotty grain pattern, it will continue to be sought after for furniture for a long time. Our pine tables are more rustic and feature open knots and "farmhouse" character.
- Cherry $$ - Natural Cherry has been a prized wood species for decades. Cherry is a smooth-grained, reddish-brown hardwood that comes from the American Black Cherry fruit tree. Cherry is renowned for its color and aging process. It starts out light with pink highlights and darkens overtime to a rich reddish hue with a lustrous patina.
- Hard Maple $$$ - Hard Maple is our most popular wood species. Known for its durability and strength, Hard Maple is commonly used for furniture, flooring, bowling alleys, musical instruments, and much more. Maple has very unique curls and grain patterns that allow it to achieve a modern farmhouse look. It also makes for a great writing surface.
- White Oak $$$$ - White Oak is a timeless, American classic hardwood. It shows a coarse texture and is straight grained, hard, tough, very stiff, and strong. One of the most popular hardwoods, White Oak makes for a beautiful table top that will last lifetimes.
- American Walnut $$$$$ - Northwest American Walnut is one of the scarcest and most coveted native hardwoods. It is in a class by itself and sets the standard for American furniture. It is heavy, hard, stiff, and shows great shock resistance. Its course texture and distinct grain patterns, make it prized for dining tables, living and dining room furniture, and much more. With its peaceful grain patterns, our walnut tables and furniture will surely turn heads for years to come.
