Walnut is recognized for its rich dark brown color. The heartwood color can range anywhere from a light brown to a purplish black. The creamy white sapwood contrasts against the dark heartwood and can be up to 3 inches in width. The grain is generally straight, while wavy or curly figure is often a common find. Walnut can be found with a wide variety of figure types. Contrary to popular belief, walnut is not a rare species. There are limitations to where it can grow, but the supply is abundant enough for commercial use. In the past, it was heavily harvested for homes, barns and fences. Due to the limitations of where it can be grown, walnut commands a higher price point.
Cherry is the most commonly known hardwood native to America. Its heartwood ranges from a light reddish brown to a deep rich red color, while the sapwood ranges from a creamy white to a light reddish brown. The wood color darkens with time and to the exposure of light, with or without a finish. It is fine grained, often with a wavy figure. It is not unusual to have natural brown pith flecks and small gum pockets. Cherry is the most commercially used native species of tree.
Red Oak is a group of species of Oak with light reddish heartwood. The sapwood color ranges from white to light brown. Visually similar to White Oak, Red Oak has a less prominent open grain pattern; however, it grows more abundant. It is generally straight grained with a course texture.
Red Oaks are often classified into two sub-groups: Northern and Southern. A Northern Red Oak is tight grained, a small ratio of sapwood to heartwood, and a light heartwood color variation. A Southern Red Oak offers a large average board size, a wide grain, a close ratio of sapwood and heartwood. It also grows more rapidly than northerly brother, and tends to be harder and heavier.
The American Chestnut was once a staple of rural American living. It is still known as one of the most rapid growing hardwoods. Unfortunately, these trees are not able to live very long due to the chestnut blight, a fatal fungal disease brought over from Asia circa 1904. American Chestnut trees are very rare but are not extinct. This being the case, the only lumber available is reclaimed from old buildings.
The heartwood ranges from a brown to gray-brown. Due to its rapid growth, there is little sapwood, which is whitish in color. It is part of the Oak family and is often mistaken for Oak when being reclaimed.
Reclaimed White Pine
As with most old-growth trees, the White Pine was heavily harvested for its lumber, making it a valuable resource. Old-growth trees yielded wider boards than available today. Boards and beams from old buildings are being reclaimed for lumber to renew the use of these historic trees.
New lumber from White Pine has a light brown to yellow or reddish brown color heartwood with cream white sapwood. It is fine grained with a uniform texture. The wood color darkens with time and exposure to light, with or without finish.
