Woods We Use

The varieties to choose from are extensive. I try to direct my clients to woods that are naturally the color they are after, using stains as a last resort.

The predominant species people choose for kitchens, for example, are maple, cherry and for some white or red oak and clear Doug fir.

My list includes:
Alder
Ash
Cedar - Western Red
Cherry - Premium heart
Beech
Douglas Fir - mostly cvg
Hickory - plain or calico
Holly - for inlay work
Maple - eastern & western, plain & figured
Mahogany - central & south American, including a farmed variety called Liptus
Makore - African wood very much like Cherry
White Oak - quartered, plain & figured
Red Oak - quartered or plain
Pine - yellow, knotty
Black Walnut - western figured or eastern plain
