The wood species mentioned here, are the most commonly used in our own production.  It should be noticed that wood is UNIQUE, and there are no two pieces of wood that are exactly the same, so when dealing with natural products it is important to remember that there can be variations, and especially there are differencies in appearance between flatsawn and quartersawn wood in appearance, strengths and stability.  also there are differencess even within a small region, and even within a single tree.

Wood is a wonderful material, and it is selfsustaining when grown in well managed forests.
