Ash timber is tough, robust and hard wearing, and has a cream or pale tan colour. It has a coarse, open grain and is very flexible, and has a natural resistance to splitting. Ash is mainly used for cabinet and furniture making, as well as for decorative veneers, panelling and marquetry.
Beech timber is a pale coloured, medium to hard timber, with a fine, tight grain. It is very robust and can be easily stained for a variety of purposes. It is most commonly used for furniture frames, carcassing, wood flooring and engineering.
Oak timber offers a range of colours from light tan to dark brown, and is often used for the production of durable, robust furniture and staircases because it has a heavy open grain. It is also commonly used for decorative veneers over more affordable timber solutions.
Mahogany timber ranges from a reddish brown colour to tan, and thanks to its stability and high resistance, it is commonly used for the production of high quality furniture. It’s a medium to hard wood, with a medium grain and high strength, so it contributes to the longevity of any structure.
MDF (Medium-density fibreboard) is an engineered timber, produced by binding hard or softwood fibres with resin and using heat and pressure to form a panel. MDF panels are therefore highly versatile with no grain or knots, so they can be cut and jointed anywhere.
