Accoya wood is highly rot-resistant and very stable across varying climates. Containing no toxic substances as the process simply increases the levels of already present elements within the molecular structure of the wood. Every piece of Accoya has been modified through to its core, providing the same performance and protection no matter how the wood is cut, planed, drilled, shaped, or more… This makes Accoya ideal for many applications including window frames, doors, façades, cladding, decking, all wi
Cherry heartwood varies from rich red to reddish-brown. The sapwood is white. It has a fine, straight grain with narrow brown pith flecks and small gum pockets. It has a smooth texture.
Hemlock is the largest of the hemlocks, and is one of the most valuable sources of exportable lumber for Canada; the species is also the state tree of Washington. When compared to Eastern Hemlock (Tsuga canadensis), Western Hemlock generally has narrower growth rings, though both
Developed in Norway, Kebony is an environmentally friendly, patented process that enhances the properties of sustainable softwood with a bio-based liquid. The process permanently modifies the wood cell walls, giving Kebony premium hardwood characteristics and a rich brown color throughout in two basic steps.
Cell Structure. Between the two species, one of the most significant differences is in their cell structure. To observe this difference, take a look at the end grain of the boards of each species. On the White Oak board, you may notice, the pores in the fiber are found to be filled with tyloses. Due to the tyloses present in White Oak, it allows it to be utilized for water-bearing products such as wine and whiskey barrels. That is a key difference between White Oak and Red Oak. Red Oak does not possess th
This cut provides the most stable board and the fewest defects.
Plain sawn is the most common cut and was the standard for homes built the first half of the last century. Typically, two- to three-inch planks of red oak were used, featuring a “cathedral” pattern in the grain. Annual growth rings were very prominent, at a zero- to 35-degree angle. Quarter sawn gets its name from the fact the log is cut into quarters. This cut features annual growth rings at a 60- to 90-degree angle. This creates a visually appealing, somewhat tight vertical grain pattern, often with
Furniture, cabinetry, gunstocks, interior paneling, veneer, turned items, and other small wooden objects and novelties.
The wood is used in a number of applications, ranging from rough-sawn lumber for use in home construction to clear quartersawn material for classical guitar soundboards.
