Cherry

Cherry has long been the classic choice for wood furniture. It has a beautiful honey hue and a noticeable yet consistent grain that compliments any stain without overpowering it.

Walnut

For a truly premium design, consider upgrading your furniture to walnut,  a substantial wood with a gorgeous chocolate hue and a rich, bold grain. Walnut is also one of the densest and heaviest woods, so any piece created from this extra hard wood will stand the test of time.  A light or natural stain is recommended so the grain can be fully appreciated. 

Elm

For the customer with a more bold design aesthetic, elm wood’s dramatic grain pattern will make any piece of furniture stand out. This eye-catching wood takes on a wide variety of colors, depending on stain selection.

Quarter Sawn White Oak

Quarter Sawn White oak has been favored for generations by traditional Amish crafters. It’s a hard oak, which is created using a long-practiced woodworking technique where logs are rip-cut into quarters, resulting in a decorative rippled effect.  The wood features consistent long streaks and tight grain patterns.

Hickory

Offering lots of light and dark variation in tone, hickory wood is great for creating a rustic look. Hickory is also known for its density and sturdiness.

Brown and Hard Maple

Maple provides a subtle grain that stains consistently. Brown maple adds some brown/mineral streaks for color, and it is our most cost-effective option. Hard maple has a more consistent tone and grain with only a small increase in cost.
