Different Woods From Europe

We tend to work with woods from South and North America and Canada, but where else do woods?

Why don’t we begin with the hardwoods of Europe, we’ve (European) Ash, (European) Walnut, (European Sycamore) Maple, English Brown Oak, (European) Beech, (European) Cherry, (European) Plane, (European) Boxwood, (European) Poplar, (European) Horse Chestnut, (European) Sweet-Chestnut, (European) Pear, (European) Holly, (European) Hornbeam, (European) Lime, and (European) Willow. Wow that! These are European hardwoods which are only native to Europe perfect for cool and fun wood projects.

Then there are the Birch, Elm, and Black Locust, these are also hard-wood trees in Europe but they’re native to both Europe and The United States. Birch is employed for plywood and general timber, Elm is used frequently for furniture, and flooring and Black Locust is used mostly for furniture, structures, and poles. And just as I listed them Birch, Elm, and Black Locust that is precisely the same arrangement of colour, Birch being the lightest, Black Locust the darkest and Elm right in the centre.

Now, down to what each one of the native woods are used for, some are extremely similar so that is where I will section off them as there are many European woods. Beech and Maple are extremely similar and extremely important woods in Europe, they’re both long-lasting and very tough to wear and tear, and they are also both light/cream to golden/ivory in-color. They are used to build furniture, boats, make hardwood flooring, as well as used in making musical instruments. Another very significant wood of Europe is Oak, which will be similar in shade to the Beech and Maple just a just a little darker, this is also found in flooring and furniture but also for staircases, windows, and doorways.
