Logs and Lumber

Beech Wood
 
Beech wood is not commonly used for furniture making, as it is not dimensionally stable in the presence of varying moisture levels. However, it is this property that gives it an advantage in the making of wood biscuits used in joining other pieces of wood together, as water-based glue will swell the biscuit tightly into the cut slots. Some drums are made from beech, which has a tone generally considered to be between maple and birch, the two most popular drum woods.
 
Oak Wood
 
Easy to glue, and takes stain and finishes very well. The process of manufacturing barrels has a very long and successful tradition in Romania, and many European wine producers have recognized the quality of the Romanian oak. Due to the Romanian climate and soil, the oak wood has some specific characteristics useful for the manufacture of wine barrels, and include:a straight trunk, slow growth, compact structure, fine porosity, and a good content of tannin and flavour components.

Ash Wood

European ash has fairly good strength properties for its weight, and is also shock resistant. When stained, ash can look very similar to oak, although oaks has much wider rays, which is visible on all wood surface -- even on flatsawn surfaces, where they appear as short, thin brown lines between the growth rings. Ashes lack these conspicuous rays.

Walnut Wood

Black walnut's sapwood, which is the outer, youger and living layer of tree, has a creamy white color. Its heartwood, which is the inner, older and dead layer of the tree, has a dark brown color. When dried through the use of kilns, black walnut wood turns a dull brown color. Using air drying techniques, on the other hand, will produce a wood with a combined brown and prple color. Walnut works easily with power and hand tools but may cause some dulling of cutting edges.
 
Cherry Wood
 
Cherry Wood heartwood is a light pinkish brown when freshly cut, darkening to a deeper golden brown with time and upon exposure to light. Sapwood is a pale yellowish color. Has a fine texture with closed pores. The grain is usually straight and easy to work—with the exception of figured pieces with curly grain patterns. Heartwood is rated as being very durable and resistant to decay. Has a mild, distinctive scent when being worked.
 
Poplar wood 
 
Poplar is considered a hardwood by species, but this can be somewhat confusing as it is typically softer than pine, a common softwood. In most instances, poplar (or should we say what is sold as poplar in home centers) is actually the wood from the tulip tree. It is a creamy white-colored wood with brown or gray sections or streaks through the grain. Poplar is relatively easy to work with, as it takes manipulation with a saw, lathe or router well.
