Timber species

 

Please note: No two trees are the same. Timber is a natural product that varies in color depending on the age and climate it is grown in. All timber darkens with time when it is exposed to light. These properties are only a guide, as timber is a natural product there will be variations within any species. The Janka Dry Hardness rating measures the hardness of the wood. The higher the number the harder the wood.
