Pick a wood, any wood

Posted on June 7, 2009


Heres a set of wood samples I just prepared, so I have a talking point about timber selection, should I convince someone to commission some furniture from me.

For those who care (and I fully accept that may only be me) the woods are (starting at 12 O’Clock) Maple, Birch ply, Douglas Fir, Tulipwood, Lime, Yew, Oak veneered MDF, Oak, MDF, Cherry, Curupay, Goncalo Alves, Jarrah, Meranti, American Black Walnut, Cocobolo, Rosewood, Ebony.

Quite a few of these timbers are only available in small quantities so would be used for accents, such as Ebony, whereas others are more plentiful and make good choices for the main body of a piece of furniture, such as Cherry.

All packed up and ready to go.
