Choose from the following selection of quality woods to create a look that suits your own style and preferences. Rustic grade is available for all of these.
Cherry is an elegant, multi-colored hardwood. In its raw state, it has a pinkish-brown hue with occasional shades of white, green, pink or gray. Cherry is excellent for traditional and formal décor.
Alder is a preferred wood for furniture. Ranking second only to oak as the most commonly used wood, alder offers the look of many fine hardwoods at a value price.
Maple has a tight, smooth, even grain that is predominantly off-white, making it popular for contemporary décor.
Mahagony ranges from tan to reddish-brown in color and may display stripe, ribbon, rope, ripple, or blister figures. Its stability and resistance to decay makes this wood ideal for high-quality cabinetry and furniture.
Sapele is a reddish-brown wood that is very popular as a decorative surface veneer for high-grade furniture such as book cases and cabinets.
Teak is a tropical hardwood and is particularly valued for its durability and water resistance. It is most often used for outdoor cabinetry.
Oak has a prominent open grain with colors from white to yellow to reddish-brown. Oak is great for casual or country décor.
