1.4 Red walnut origin in Myanmar, India, Vietnam, etc., red walnut wood uniform colour, with sour odor, oily feeling, core yellow-brown to reddish-brown, with a few thin strips or light dark fine scratch lines, part of the tube hole containing dark gum; straight or wavy texture, wood strength, hard material, fine and uniform structure, corrosion resistance, good wear resistance, good performance, small dry shrinkage.


Light yellow-brown wood, elegant texture, medium parabolic pattern on the chord section, with small circles between. Cherry is also a high-grade wood and is usually used for furniture with veneer, rarely with solid wood.


Here beech refers to beech, which has a bright light yellow colour. Beech: heavy, strong, impact resistant, easy to bend under steam, can be made into shapes, good nailing performance, but easy to crack. Clear grain, evenly textured wood, soft, smooth tones. Heavier than most hardwoods, cracks easily when kiln dried and processed.


Maple is light yellow in colour, with a small mountain grain. The most characteristic feature is the “shadow” (local lustre is obvious). Maple is a mid-range wood, veneer and solid wood are very common. Maple is divided into two types: soft maple and hard maple. The wood is greyish-brown to greyish-red in colour, with an inconspicuous annual ring and many small, evenly distributed official holes.

Disadvantages: rubber wood has an unpleasant smell and is prone to discoloration, decay and insect infestation due to the high sugar content. Not easy to dry, not wear-resistant, easy to crack, easy to bend deformation, wood processing easy, while the plate processing easy to deformation.

7.Oak wood

It is heavy, hard, coarse structure, slow growth, heart sapwood distinction is obvious. Texture straight or oblique, wood rays are very obvious, water resistance and corrosion resistance, high mechanical strength, wood is very difficult to dry, high processing difficulties, but the cut surface is smooth, wear-resistant, high gluing requirements, paint coloring, good finishing performance.
