Wood Species

The Solid Wood Difference

At RealCraft we use real wood sourced from around the country and around the world. We offer twenty wood species to suit every style, taste, and budget. All the wood we use is genuine—no engineered substitutes here. So no matter what wood type you get, you’re getting what you pay for and experiencing the beauty and longevity of solid wood. 

The color and grain pattern of the wood species affect the look and feel of your whole space. That’s offer wood and finish samples so you can see the wood in real life before you buy. Compare several options to make a confident choice.  

Wood is a natural material, so it should always be treated with care. Regular finish maintenance and gentle cleaning are key to preserving its beauty.

The Characteristics of Wood 

  • Grain Pattern: Each wood species has its own unique grain pattern, like the fingerprint of a tree. Some grain patterns are straight and regular, others are knotty, and others can be dramatic like Zebrawood.  
  • Shrinking and Expanding: Each wood species responds differently to changes in humidity. But most wood species experience slight shrinking and swelling with changes in the seasons. Using a high quality wood finish helps keep your wood dimensionally stable.  
  • Hardness: Janka hardness measures how many pounds of force it takes to lodge a small metal ball halfway into a piece of wood. Some woods are harder than others, even among the “hardwoods” category. This property is most relevant for applications that get contact with tools, like countertops, or for commercial applications with very heavy use.  
  • Density: Each wood species has its own pattern of density and weight. Some wood species, like Western Red Cedar, are less dense, which makes them optimal for very large doors.
