Types of woods

wood species

Hardwood species vary in the ability to withstand wear, pressure, or damage, grain patterns, and color. Oak, maple, and cherry are among the most common species due to their hardness. Nonnative woods like mahogany and Brazilian cherry aren’t as durable but are valued extremely high for their striking appearance.
