When choosing wood for Furniture Refurbishment Restoration Cork project, it all comes down to three important details: Type, Colour and Grain
All woods can be classified as hard or soft. Hardwood comes from broad-leafed trees such as birch, oak, maple, and cherry. Softwood comes from needle-bearing evergreen trees such as pine, spruce and cedar.
From the light touches of maple to the darker hues of cherry, all woods have natural colour variations even within the same tree. The inherent natural colours and variations result in a number of beautiful possibilities for your room. While finishes can either enhance or mask the material’s colour variations, it’s important to understand the natural colour characteristics and variations of wood to make sure you’re selecting a wood that will be right for your home. To understand these beautiful variations and select one that you will love Jonathan is there to help.
Grain refers to the overall alignment, texture and various patterns that appear in your wood. As every tree has distinct grain patterns and markings, each piece of wood from that tree will have its own unique design.
Some basic grain descriptions include:
- Fine: Inconspicuous or invisible patterns
- Straight: Straight, vertical patterns
- Cross: Lines that run parallel to the sides of the wood
- Spiral: Tornado or funnel-like patterns
- Wavy: Wave-like patterns
- Curly: Circular patterns
- Arch: Inverted U or V patterns
When creating a specific look and feel for your room, you’ll want to understand some of the different types of wood used to build cabinetry:
Maple is a medium to hard wood with a straight, wavy or curly grain. Popular for its shock resistance and durability, maple has a light, uniform appearance that produces a smooth, clean look when stained. Another plus is that it can also be finished to resemble other, more expensive hardwoods and softwoods such as cherry and cedar. Maple is a great choice for a light, airy kitchen or a dramatic kitchen with darker finishes.
Oak is a very hard, heavy wood with a coarse grain that varies from straight to a distinctive sweeping arch pattern. Found in both red and white varieties, oak is a great cabinetry choice because it is timeless, blending beautifully with many different design styles. And it stains well in standard finish colours.
Birch is a smooth hardwood with straight, wavy or curly grains with a high shock resistance that takes any stain well. Birch is mostly a light-coloured wood, and varies from cream to light yellow. However, the wood found in the center of the tree, or heartwood, takes on a darker reddish brown colour, which may result in unique colour variations in your cabinetry. It is versatile and can achieve any look, from a more casual space to a refined setting.
Cherry is well known for its smooth grain and unique colour that mellows and deepens as it ages. This “mellowing” effect is enhanced by exposure to bright light and, depending on the amount of exposure, will tend to darken several shades over time. Considered a luxury wood due to its expensive price, cherry has pinkish-brown hues and occasional shades of white, green, or grey. Its dark colour brings a warm elegance to any room.
