ash 

  • distinct, strong contrast grain pattern

  • durable and incredibly dense

  • one of the most economical hardwoods

maple 

  • smooth grain / light, creamy color

  • incredibly strong

  • economical, priced slightly above ash

  • best for furniture where limited grain is desired. I do not recommend darker stains on maple as it can get splotchy.

white oak 

  • soft-looking / luxe grain

  • durable and incredibly dense

  • premium-priced timber

  • easily takes on stain - the graining is less active, the color is a light brown with a slight olive cast (in its natural state)
