Get to Know the Wood Options

American Black Walnut (Juglans nigra)
Color Range: Light to Dark Brown or Chocolate Brown
Black Walnut is one of the most prized American hardwoods woods for fine furniture. It is known for it's fine, yet open-grain, unique patterns, and bold dark color. The wood takes on an amazing color, warmth, and chetoyance with a simple clear finish. 
American White Oak (Quercus Alba)
Color Range: Beige to Creamy Tan
White Oak produces some of the finest lumber in North America.  It's cellular structure proves impermeable to liquids and is resistant to decay, making it suitable for outdoor projects—a rare feat for a North American hardwood. This wood has been used by mankind for centuries for anything from ships to barrels and has more recently become highly sought after for fine furniture. It's straight grain structure makes it extremely versitle, but especially well suited for sleek, clean designs. 
Ambrosia Maple (Acer Rubrum)
Color Range:  Cream white with irregular streaks of gray, dark brown, tan or black
Ambrosia Maple is Soft Maple with a cream colored background which is host to a variety of greyish-blue to brown streaks that are caused by an infestation of the ambrosia beetle. The beetle burrows into the tree and leaves a fungus in it’s path, which is what creates the discoloration in the wood and create a very unique pattern in each board. In most or all of the streaks there are tiny holes from where the beetle burrowed into the wood. Neither the fungus nor the holes disturb the integrity of the wood. The wealth of character in this wood will make your project stand out and become a focal point of the room. 

 American White Ash (Fraxinus americana)

Color Range: Light cream to Light Brown

White Ash is quite possibly one of the most underrated woods in North America. This wood is extremely dense and sturdy. You can expect an open grain pattern and beautiful swooping cathedrals patterns throughout a consistently light-colored wood. White Ash can be finished with a water-based finish to keep it a very white color, or an oil to bring out some warmer hues in the wood.
