Why Choose Real Wood Furniture?

Much of today's furniture sold at retail is fashioned from particle board rather than solid wood. Particle board is made by bonding wood chips together and compressing them into sheets. When used for furniture, it is topped with a veneer (a thin layer of real wood) to give the piece the appearance of being made from solid wood, but particle board, unlike solid, real wood, is prone to denting and chipping and does not hold up well.

You can rest assured that the furniture you find in a store bearing the "Real Wood Furniture Finished Your Way®" seal is crafted of genuine wood. That seal is your guarantee of quality. It means that all structural components are either solid wood or plywood, a material composed of multiple thin layers of solid wood, glued at right angles to each other for extra strength and durability, and finished with a veneer in a specific wood.

Ready-to-finish furniture is available in a wide variety of hardwoods, each with its own distinctive grain patterns and colorations. Among the most popular choices are alder, ash, beech, birch, maple, oak and parawood, a wood from the Far East with a grain similar to mahogany. Among the soft woods used for furniture, Eastern white pine, ponderosa pine and sugar pine are popular U.S. varieties, while Radiata pine is a plantation-grown variety from South America with a beautiful grain pattern.

What is Rubberwood?

This eco-friendly hardwood is harvested only after 30 years' use as a source for latex. (The sap is made into latex in the same way that maple sap is made into maple syrup.) Yellow in color, with a grain similar to mahogany, rubberwood is as hard as maple or ash and takes a very even stain. To view more wood visit: http://barefurnitureny.com/wood

What is Alder?

One of our most eco-friendly choices, this fast-growing hardwood is very consistent in color and takes stain well. It gives the look of many fine hardwoods at a reasonable price.

Alder wood, regardless of whether it is the sapwood or the heartwood, is a whitish color when the wood is cut. However, after being cut, alder wood species colors turn to an attractive brownish-orange. Alder wood species have fine grains and small pores. Alder takes well to staining and can be matched to other types of woods, if desired. Alder wood species should only be used in a home’s interior because alder is susceptible to rotting and insects.

Today, you will find alder wood species used to make finished furniture and unfinished furniture, as well as floorings.

What is Ash?

This long-fibered, light-colored hardwood has a tight grain much like birch or maple, is good for bending, takes stain well, and is used mainly for chairs and stools.

What is Aspen?

A softer, light-colored, even-grained hardwood, aspen takes most stains well, but may need a sealer or a coat of mineral spirits to achieve an even stain. Keep in mind that non-penetrating stains work best on this wood—or let us finish it for you!

What is Beech?

This cream-colored hardwood has an open-grain pattern similar to that of oak, and takes stains well.

What is Birch?

A fine-grained hardwood that is white in color and takes any color of stain well.

What Cedar?

Another eco-friendly choice, this sturdy softwood is farmed so that nothing in nature is disturbed. Cedar is treasured for its beautiful color variations, distinctive aroma, and natural oils that repel moths and other pests.

What is Cypress?

Technically a softwood, cypress shares many properties of hardwoods and is often classified as one. Most frequently used for outdoor furniture, it is prized for its rustic look and the natural oils that protect it from insects and the elements.

What is Pine?

One of the most popular woods for unfinished furniture, all varieties have a yellow coloring with brown knots and are excellent for staining. Pine is a soft wood.

What is Red Oak?

What are red oak wood species used to make? Red oak is used to make flooring, corbels, paneling, and furniture. Red oak wood species are also used to make products such as doors, and cabinets.

What properties does red oak wood species have? Red oak wood species colors run from creamy yellow to red. The grain patterns are beautiful. These patterns are generally open, but will vary according to how the wood is cut, and can include pin stripes, flares, butterflies, or leafy lines. Red oak wood species are quite porous with a medium to course texture. Red oak is very strong, is very heavy, and wears well. Red oak wood species can be stained a number of different colors.
