Types of Wood

Often the first decision to be made in designing your custom home, kitchen or bathroom is the type of wood that will be chosen.  This important decision will determine the feel of the room, whether you are looking for a light and airy kitchen with natural maple or a master bathroom with rich, dark tones like a dark cherry.  When choosing a type of wood, keep in mind that as wood ages and is exposed to sunlight, it will naturally change in color. 


We recommend viewing several wood samples in our workshop to become familiar with the natural characteristics of the particular wood species.  Here is a list of some of the wood types available to choose from:

Basic Wood Types - Birch, Oak, Pine, Hickory, Ash, Maple and Cherry

More Exotic Wood Types - Flame Birch, Black Walnut, Mahogany, Curly Maple, Birds Eye Maple, Alder, Rustic Alder and Rustic Hickory
