Wood Species

maplemaple

Maple

An all-American favorite, with its warm golden color and its mostly straight grain, sugar maple is the state tree of New York, Wisconsin, Vermont and West Virginia. Very versatile, it is used for bowling pins, bowling alley lanes, pool cue shafts, butcher's blocks, baseball bats and is a favorite of American furniture manufacturers. It was even used to make women shoe heels until the turn of the century! Hard maple is also a standard wood for cutting boards because it imparts no taste to food and holds up well. A classic!  

 

Walnut

Walnut trees are predominantly grown in North America, California being the largest purveyor of the trees. Centuries ago, Native Americans would extract oil from the Walnut tree to cook corn and beans. Another fun fact is that a handful of tasty black walnuts contain more protein than two slices of bacon! Noble, lustrous, durable, it has an aristocratic looks to it, and its rich dark tones makes the food you’re cutting or serving on it stand out. A pick of choice!

Cherry

Another America’s favorite! "New England Mahogany", as called by early Colonial furniture makers, as a color similar to mahogany that darkens with age. Satiny to the touch, the grain of the cherry tree is very desirable because of its unique ripple figures and reddish brown shades. It's strong, moderately hard and has excellent shock resistance, which makes it a very good option for a cutting board. Early printmakers even used it for their printing blocks! Black cherry trees grow throughout the Midwest to Eastern U.S.

Thermal Maple

Torrefaction caramelizes the wood at a high temperature (between 160 and 240 degrees Celsius) in a low oxygen environment, emphasizing the wood grain and giving it a beautiful change in color. This treatment leaves our hardwood maple boards a beautiful coffee brown with the strength of the board being on par with one untreated. Torrefied wood is an entirely natural and eco-friendly choice, eliminating the use of any harmful chemicals. Torrefied wood has also less of a tendency to warp or shrink due to temperature and humidity variations.

Rubberwood

Also know as plantation hardwood, it is said that Rubberwood is environmental friendly because the tree already served another purpose, making Rubber. In the past, the trees were burned at the end of their latex-producing cycle, but times have changed and the wood is now cut to be used. It is easily worked and usually used to make furniture or other wood projects. One of it's qualities is that it has very low shrinkage making it very stable.

Teak

Originating from tropical areas in South Asia, this hardwood tree is well known for its water resistances and great durability. It has now been naturalized and cultivated in some parts of Africa and the Caribbean. It is vastly used for boat building, exterior construction, furniture and other wood projects. The tallest Teak tree in the world is 47.5 metres tall and is said to be between 450 and 500 years of age.
