Steamed beech is slightly pinker in colour than unsteamed wood, creating a more unique finish. A widely used hardwood, beech is a durable option for an array of different projects, offering strength, hardness and bending properties.
Typically features a straight grain with a fine, even texture. Great to work with, beech machines effectively - with great results when gluing and finishing with polishes and stains. Offers a great deal of movement in service so it's important to consider stability and movement with your beech woodworking projects.
Perfect for dining room tables, kitchen worktops, desktops, retail counters in bars and cafés as well as many other interior uses.
