About Our Types of Wood

We take great care to grain and color match so your
wood parts look uniform in relation to one another.
Below are samples of the unfinished wood types we sell,
and descriptions of each wood species. For outdoor use,
we recommend Sapele Mahogany or Spanish Cedar.
Please keep in mind that because monitor color can vary
widely, the wood images shown are for quick reference only.
wood components available in cherry wood species Cherry
We don’t select for sap-free wood, but guarantee 25% or less sap per leg. This
allows you to turn the sap “to the inside”
so it doesn’t show.
wood components available in soft maple wood species Soft Maple
Very hard. The economical hardwood choice. Readily accepts paint. Color is creamy to whitish, taking on a golden hue as it ages.
wood components available in red oak wood species Red Oak
Very dense with reddish and golden tones. Accepts stain beautifully. Porous grain must be filled before painting.
wood components available in white oak wood species White Oak
Light brown color with longer ray fleck than red oak. Signature wood of Mission & Stickley style.
wood components available in white pine wood species White Pine
Soft wood, best value. Prominent knots can bleed through paint finishes. Maple can be a better choice for painting & for high-use durability.
wood components available in alder wood species Alder
A popular hardwood very similar to cherry, but not as dense. Some
pin knots.
wood components available in Sapele Mahogany wood species Sapele Mahogany
Variable color from yellowish to lustrous red. Accepts stain well. Also useful for outdoor furniture and house parts that will be sealed up with coatings or are under cover.
wood components available in black walnut wood species Black Walnut
Heartwood varies from lightest brown to deep chocolate. Sapwood is whitish to yellowish brown. It is common to stain sapwood to match heartwood. Open grain may require filling before staining.
