Hardwoods are deciduous (leafy) trees, shedding their leaves during the colder months. All hardwoods have a more complicated grain structure than softwoods, with large pores that occasionally result in striking “ray fleck” patterns, especially when quartersawn.

Classically found in furniture and flooring, hardwoods such as oak, cherry, walnut or beech can also be used to create beautiful interior spaces. Such species are oftentimes employed by us as veneer stock to maximize yield from choice logs.
