Wooden Species List


Western Red Cedar   48px-information-icon4.svg.png  big-image.jpg

The soft red-brown timber has a tight, straight grain and knots. It is valued for its distinct appearance, aroma, and its high natural resistance to decay, being extensively used for outdoor construction in the form of posts, decking,brackets,corbels, shingles and siding. It is cultivated as an ornamental tree, to a limited extent in forestry plantations and for screens and hedges. It is also used to line closets and chests, for its pungent aromatic oils are believed to discourage moth and carpet beetle larvae, which can damage cloth by eating wool and similar fibres.


Poplar   48px-information-icon4.svg.png  big-image.jpg

Poplar was the most common wood used in Italy for panel paintings; the Mona Lisa and indeed most famous early renaissance Italian paintings are on poplar. The wood is generally white, often with a slightly yellowish color.


Soft Maple   48px-information-icon4.svg.png  big-image.jpg

Soft and Hard Maple are frequently milled for timber. The resultant wood is often used in cabinetry, furniture, tool handles, cutting boards, butcher blocks, crates, pallets and wooden boxes. The heartwood of old silver maples often develops a swirled pattern, defined as "bird's eye maple." This premium-grade wood is then utilized to fashion high-end picture frames and furniture.
