Choosing Your Wood Species
Hardwood Wood Species
Withstanding the Test of Time
Hardwoods are more stable throughout the seasons and tend to shrink and expand a little less. This is another reason hardwoods are more expensive. Their tighten grain structure helps repel moisture absorption over time as your new furniture settles into your home.
Hickory is one of the densest and strongest domestic wood species. With a light to medium brown heart wood to a darker brown sapwood, hickory has gorgeous color variations that make each table one of a kind.
Red oak is of the most dominant hardwood species found in the US. It has a similar grain structure to white oak but because of its’ dominance, red oak is sold at a fraction of the cost.
White Oak is one of the hardest wood we use and will stand the test of time. It is hard, heavy and has great wear resistance. If you have children that will be using this table regularly White Oak may be the option for you.
