White beech is a popular and versatile choice for a number of varied uses including furniture, interior joinery and it can also be stained and polished to a high level. Pale cream in colour, with a brownish hue, beech grain is straight with a medium to fine uniform texture and features a subtle lustre.
Overall, beech is great to work with, particularly under machine use - gluing and finishing very effectively. While it performs incredibly well to steam-bending, there is a large amount of movement in service, so always consider stability and movement when working on your latest projects.
Excellent value for money while remaining hard and durable for most of your everyday practical projects and aesthetic purposes.
Perfect for dining room tables, kitchen worktops, desktops, retail counters in bars and cafés as well as many other interior uses.
