Wood species most Amish builders work with:

We will be updating this area soon with more information on each of the wood species and their characteristics.  Please check back here for this updated wood species information!

Please remember - each wood species (oak, maple, cherry, etc.) has different patterns of wood grain - some are more noticeable and bold whereas others have finer and thin grain lines that are more subtle.  Each species of wood also accepts stain a little differently, and there can be variability in lighter and darker areas due to how each piece of wood absorbs the stain.  That is beauty of real wood.
