Description

Details

Our Prime Beech is sourced from Europe and planed to order in our factory here in Yorkshire. The sapwood is hard to differentiate from the heartwood. The colour can vary from whitish to very pale brown and may darken to a pale pinkish brown. It can turn to a deeper reddish brown with steaming. The wood sometimes has a dark red heart or darker veining. It has a straight grain with fine, even texture and a characteristic fleck, and quarter-sawn wood may display an attractive broad ray figure on radial surfaces.

Properties
It has medium stiffness and high crushing strength. Pre-boring is necessary when nailing. It glues easily, stains and dyes well and takes an excellent finish. It is very good for turning.

Typical Uses
Solid and laminated furniture such as desks, benches and chairs (including bentwood furniture), quality joinery, kitchenware, tools, tool handles and workbenches, musical instruments, toys, bobbins, decorative veneers and plywood.

Typical height: 100 ft (30m)

Great product and service
I have bought hardwoods from a number of suppliers in the past. British Hardwoods is by far the best in terms of quality, service and the way the wood is packaged. Highly recommended ... you will not be disappointed.
