We use the following wood species in our products due to their high quality, stability, and resistance to water and weather. All of our woods are derived from sustainably-minded forestry practices.
Vertical Grain Douglas Fir
Beyond its rich beautiful color and texture, fine grained Douglas Fir is close to perfect for making windows and doors. With its long straight tight grain, it is very stable and strong, resisting warping, twisting, rot and decay. It machines nicely and can be detailed and finished to fine furniture-grade quality.
Sapele (African Mahogany)
Sapele is a reddish-brown wood that in many ways is very similar to Mahogany. It’s hardness and stability make it a popular choice for doors. A remarkable feature of sapele is that the grain is interlocked and changes direction in frequent, irregular intervals. It has a wide variety of applications and is very popular as a decorative surface veneer for high-grade furniture such as book cases and cabinets. It is a great alternative to genuine Mahogany.
Accoya Wood Products
Accoya is a high-technology wood. Created via an acetylated wood modification process, using sustainably grown timber, the Accoya process is non-toxic. It is a wood that matches or exceeds the durability, stability and beauty of tropical hardwoods. Accoya far surpasses the stability and resistance to rot and decay of teak, cedar, and redwood. We offer it in both pine and alder options.
This wood has a closed cellular structure that makes it water- and rot-resistant. All of our standard door sills use it because of its stability and machinability.
