Wild Cherry: Wild Cherry (or Gean) features a very attractive two tone mid brown heartwood and pale cream to sapwood, (depending on the ratio of heartwood to sapwood), with a distinct grain pattern. Generally uniform grain in appearance, with subtly defined growth rings.
Ash: Ash is typically a lighter coloured wood of white to light cream with an attractive distinct grain pattern. The sapwood is not distinguishable from heartwood, and occasionally an irregular dark brown heart wood contrasting with the paler sapwood features known as olive ash. Growth rings are very distinct in Ash.
Willow: Features a light brown heartwood to pale cream sapwood sometimes with attractive brown streaks and flecks randomly features in the grain of the wood. Straight grained wood with visible growth rings.
Sycamore: The timber is a lovely creamy colour with a natural lustre. It darkens somewhat on exposure to light, becoming golden in appearance. Sycamore has a subtle figure, with visible growth rings. Occasionally light green flecks can occur in the grain pattern. Rippled sycamore has a beautiful wavy figure, caused by varying grain direction.
Alder: Alder when first cut can be a rather intense shade of orange, but this fades over time until the timber becomes a lovely warm light orange-brown colour. It has a fine texture with subtly defined growth rings. Its most noticeable and attractive feature being the dark streaks (medullary rays) that occur throughout the timber.
