furniture of valuable wood species
Despite the difference in the characteristics of precious wood in terms of density, hardness, unique structures and textures, furniture made of these types of wood has some common properties:
absolute environmental friendliness of natural material, emitting useful substances into the atmosphere even after
treatment (essential oils, phytoncides, tannins);
resistance to deformation from moisture, steam, temperature fluctuations;
resistance to mechanical stress;
resistance to mold, rot, bugs;
high repairability of products - even significant chips can be restored;
luxury aesthetics, exclusive textures of each product.
The hardest species of domestic wood is oak. Despite the high density and hardness, solid wood is perfectly amenable to processing on the machines and hand carving. The natural color of this wood (brownish-greenish) is rarely seen in finished products, since for high-end furniture usually use a near-black shade of stained oak. It looks great in wall panels and furniture sets for offices, meeting rooms, conference rooms, libraries, billiard rooms and nightclubs.
The more plastic beech with a pinkish shade and a pronounced fine pattern of texture perfectly amenable to manual and mechanical processing, bleaching, and varnishing. Furniture, coffered ceilings, wall panels made of solid beech look luxurious in the living room, dining room, boudoir, bedroom, nursery.
Golden walnut texture with a subtle pattern is indispensable for the unique inlay or veneering of furniture fronts of less valuable species.
Karelian birch has a unique pattern - unique specks of dark brown on a light yellow background. But its scarcity has led to the fact that in the production of furniture mostly veneer is used.
The same applies to solid cherry, which is used to furnish items of less expensive species.
Some exotic varieties of trees, their burls and roots are used for inlay or veneer. Wood of most species, in particular, almost all types of mahogany, which is most available in Russia, have high hardness and density, strength, resistance to deformation, decay and moisture. Ribbon or sporadic inlaid texture of this wood allows you to make it unique in its beauty luxurious furniture sets.
