WHITE ASH                                                      


The heartwood is a light to medium brown color.  Has a medium to coarse texture similar to oak. The grain is almost always straight and regular.  White Ash has excellent shock resistance.  It is one of the most commonly used hardwoods for tool handles in North America—particularly in shovels and hammers where toughness and impact resistance is important.



Pale white to light brown color.  Growth rings tend to be subtle, and color is mostly uniform throughout the face grain of the wood. Knots and other defects are uncommon.  Grain is straight, with a fine, even texture and moderate natural luster. Basswood is an ideal wood for many woodcarvers. Its soft, fine, even texture make it easy to work with, while its pale, inconspicuous color doesn’t detract from the carved patterns of the finished product (which also makes it easier to paint and color).


YELLOW BIRCH                                                       


Heartwood tends to be a light reddish brown, with nearly white sapwood.  There is virtually no color distinction between annual growth rings, giving Birch a uniform appearance.  Grain is generally straight or slightly wavy, with a fine, even texture.  Birch is one of the most widely used woods for veneer and plywood worldwide. Birch veneer is also used for doors, furniture, and paneling.



Heartwood is a light pinkish brown when freshly cut, darkening to a medium reddish brown with time and upon exposure to light.  The grain is usually straight and easy to work.  Has a fine, even texture.  Cherry is known as being one of the best all-around woods for workability. It is stable, straight-grained, and machines well.  Typically used for cabinetry, fine furniture, and flooring.  Black Cherry develops a rich reddish-brown patina as it ages that’s frequently imitated with wood stains on other hardwoods. 




Heartwood tends to be light to medium brown, with a reddish hue; sapwood is a paler yellowish brown. Boards with contrasting heartwood and sapwood create a somewhat rustic appearance that’s sometimes marketed as Calico Hickory.  Grain is usually straight, though occasionally wavy, with a medium texture. Hickory is among the hardest and strongest of woods native to the United States.  The wood is commonly used where strength or shock-resistance is important.  Common uses include Tool handles, ladder rungs, wheel spokes, flooring, etc. 


HARD (SUGAR) MAPLE                                 


Unlike most other hardwoods, the sapwood of Hard Maple lumber is most commonly used rather than its heartwood. Sapwood color ranges from nearly white, to an off-white cream color, sometimes with a reddish or golden hue. The heartwood tends to be a darker reddish brown. Grain is generally straight, but may be wavy. Has a fine, even texture.  Hard Maple is stronger, stiffer, harder, and denser than all of the other species of maple available in lumber form.  Common uses include flooring (from basketball courts and dance-floors to bowling alleys and residential), veneer, paper (pulpwood), musical instruments, cutting boards, butcher blocks, workbenches, baseball bats, and other turned objects and specialty wood items.


RED (SOFT) MAPLE                      

Sapwood color ranges from almost white, to a light golden or reddish brown, while the heartwood is a darker reddish brown. Grain is generally straight, but may be wavy. Has a fine, even texture. The growth rings tend to be lighter and less distinct in Soft Maples than in Hard Maple.  It is easy to work with both hand and machine tools.  Commonly used for veneer, paper (pulpwood), boxes, and crates/pallets.


RED OAK                                                    


Heartwood is a light to medium brown, commonly with a reddish cast.  Grain is straight, with a coarse, uneven texture. Produces good results with hand and machine tools.  Abundant availability in a good range of widths and thicknesses.  Used for cabinetry, furniture, interior trim, flooring, and veneer.  Arguably the most popular hardwood in the United States, Red Oak is a ubiquitous sight in many homes. Even many vinyl/imitation wood surfaces are printed to look like Red Oak. Hard, strong, and moderately priced, Red Oak presents an exceptional value which explains why it is so widely used in cabinet and furniture making.




Heartwood is a light to medium brown, commonly with an olive cast. Nearly white to light brown sapwood is not always sharply demarcated from the heartwood.  Produces good results with hand and machine tools.  White Oak is strong, beautiful, rot-resistant, easy-to-work, and economical, representing an exceptional value to woodworkers. Most likely why the wood is so widely used in cabinet and furniture making.



Heartwood is light cream to yellowish brown.  Poplar typically has a straight, uniform grain, with a medium texture.  Among the most economical and inexpensive of all domestic hardwoods.  It’s typically used for pallets, crates, upholstered furniture frames, paper (pulpwood), and plywood.  Poplar is one of the most common utility hardwoods in the United States. 



Heartwood can range from a lighter pale brown to a dark chocolate brown with darker brown streaks. Color can sometimes have a grey, purple, or reddish cast.  Grain is usually straight, but can be irregular.  It is rated very durable in terms of decay resistance.  It would be hard to overstate Black Walnut’s popularity among woodworkers in the United States. Its cooperative working characteristics, coupled with its rich brown coloration puts the wood in a class by itself among temperate-zone hardwoods. To cap it off, the wood also has good dimensional stability, shock resistance, and strength properties.
