Softwood Lumber

Beech works readily with most hand and machine tools. It has good nailing and gluing properties and can be stained to a good finish. The wood dries fairly rapidly but with a strong tendency to warp, split and surface check. It is subject to a high shrinkage and moderate movement in performance.

Uniform texture with a straight-grained modern appeal.

  • Colour: The sapwood generally has a clean white colour, while the heartwood is light to dark brown.

  • Physical Properties: hard, strong and resistant to shock. Subject to moderate movement.

  • Applications: Furniture, doors, flooring, millwork, paneling, brush handles, woodenware, bending stock, toys and turnings. It is particularly suitable for food and liquid containers since there is no odour or taste. Availability is fairly limited.

  • Applications: Furniture, flooring, tool handles, mouldings, millwork, sporting goods, architectural millwork and moulding, kitchen cabinets, paneling, tool handles, baseball bats, hockey sticks, billiard cues, skis, oars and turnings. Typically available in thickness from 4/4 through 12/4.
