Covered Bridge Wood Species

 

 

RED OAK -- The most traditional and commonly used wood species in cabinetry for many years.  It is known for its distinctive open graining and attractive price.  Oak lumber can vary from almost white to brown to gray.  These are normal variations in the color of oak, and are to be expected in cabinetry.  The lighter the stain, the more noticeable the variations.

MAPLE --  A hard and heavy wood known for its lighter color and tight graining (less distinct grain).  Color varies from almost white to gray to medium brown.  Maple has become very popular of late due to its tight grain and use with glazed finishes.
