Different Species of Wood
We have a wide variety of wood species, each one having specific applications.
Red Elm Red Elm is a rare kind of wood that almost got wiped out because of the Dutch elm disease. This type of wood is commonly used to make tabletops and chairs.
Walnut Walnut is a kind of wood that looks beautiful with a clear finish. This type of wood is used to make tables, chairs, and bedroom furniture.
Cherry Cherry is normally used to build fine furniture. This type of wood has a reddish colour and looks best with a clear finish.
Hickory Hickory is the hardest kind of domestic wood in Ontario. This type of wood is used for tables, chairs, cabinets, and flooring.
Beech Beech is a hard and heavy kind of wood that can be found throughout Southern Ontario. This type of wood is mostly used for flooring, as well as some furniture applications.
White Ash White ash can be found across Ontario, but it has become harder to source because of the harmful effects caused by the emerald ash borer in the southwestern part of the province. This strong and dense wood is ideal for furniture, flooring, and baseball bats.
White Pine White pine is one of Ontario’s most common trees, reaching heights of up to 30 metres. This softwood tree can be used for all types of furniture, doors, and trims.
White Birch A common wood in Ontario, white birch is highly valued because of its figured grains. This type of wood is used for fine furniture.
Poplar Poplar is a very common tree in Ontario. This light and soft type of wood is used for paint-grade furniture and trims.
Red Oak Red oak is one of our most popular wood options and is known for beautiful grain patterns, as well as excellent finishes. This type of wood is used for the same applications as soft maple.
Hard Maple Hard maple is a common tree that grows in Southern Ontario. Apart from its importance in the maple syrup industry, hard maple can also be used for fine furniture and flooring.
Soft Maple Found along the Great Lakes in Southern Ontario, soft maples are mostly planted as ornamental trees in residential areas because of their red leaves. Soft maple is a popular species in the industry. It is used for tables, chairs, and bedroom sets.
Soft maple wood finishes beautifully and has many grades, including brown, wormy, and figured. Wormy maple wood has become popular among customers who are looking for furniture with a rustic look.
