  • Ash is a dense and durable wood with unique meandering grain patterns and hues that run from cream to blonde to rich nutty brown.
  • Birch offers color that ranges from rich reddish-brown to warm amber and blonde, and features grain patterns with everything from subtle swirls to flame-like effects.
  • Brown Maple features subtle and consistent grain patterns with colors of rich brown, gold and amber.
  • White Maple features strikingly beautiful grain patterns with cleaner and lighter hues that provide a more neutral palette.
  • Cherry boasts deep red tones that darken to a burnished auburn color as the wood ages, along with subtle but distinctive flowing grain patterns.
