TOP 5 HARDEST WOODS

TOP 5 HARDEST WOODS

1. Quebracho – From the Spanish “quebrar hacha,” which literally means
“axe breaker.” Aptly named, wood in the Schinopsis genus is among the
heaviest and hardest in the world.
2. Lignum Vitae -Widely accepted as the hardest wood in the world–this
wood has been listed as an endangered species and is listed in CITES.
Consider Verawood as a very close substitute.
3. Gidgee – This Australian endemic is both very heavy and very strong.
Some pieces are dark enough to be used as an ebony substitute: one that’s
even harder than the original article.
4. Snakewood – It’s easy to see what makes Snakewood so unique–its patterns
and markings resemble the skin of a snake. Limited supply and high demand
make this one of the most expensive woods on eart.
5. Verawood – Sometimes called Argentine Lignum Vitae, this wood is a gem:
inexpensive, great olive-green color, beautiful feathery grain pattern, and
it takes a great natural polish on the lathe.

Engineered European Oak by Floor Sanding Maidenhead

Engineered European Oak provides a classically beautiful and timeless floor. European Oak is usually straight-grained but irregular or cross-grained material can occur depending on growth conditions. A characteristic silver grain is displayed on quartered surfaces due to broad rays.

Clear Oil / Lacquer finishes both protect the floor but enhance the colour, grain and figuring. European Oak flooring develops a rich golden patina with streaks of lighter and darker caramel hues.

This year Natural finishes are trending…. the raw, natural beauty of European Oak is played up by a natural finish. Grey / beige tones are the new neutrals within Interior Design themes and found naturally within unfinished Oak. Our Nature UV Oil finish retains these gorgeous hues and prevents yellowing. Love this trend…naturally beautiful.wood-floor-677054_1920
