Wood Species

No matter what product you’re purchasing, you need to know which wood species is best for the project. Choosing a species depends on the style of your home, the desired finishing color (unfinished or prefinished) and what the product is being used for. Some wood species are great wood flooring options for high-traffic areas because they’re durable and scratch-resistant; others look great but need to be used in applications where less wear and tear takes place.

Wood Species Options

    • Red Oak — Commonly used for cabinetry, furniture, flooring, dowel rods, mouldings and trim (also available as quarter sawn).
    • Hard Maple — Commonly used for cabinetry, furniture, bowling alleys, gym floors and cutting boards.
    • Cherry — Commonly used for interior doors, furniture, cabinetry, flooring, mouldings and trim.
    • Poplar — Commonly used for interior doors, furniture, dimensional lumber, dowel rods, mouldings and trim.
    • Hickory — Commonly used for flooring, tool handles, sports equipment, ladder rungs and smoking meat.
    • Walnut — Commonly used for interior doors, furniture, cabinetry, dowel rods, mouldings and trim.
    • White Oak – Commonly used for dowel rods, furniture, flooring, cabinetry, mouldings and trim (also available in quarter sawn).
    • Eastern White Pine — A softwood commonly used for mouldings, furniture, cabinetry, dimensional lumber and boat building.
