Solid Wood Furniture
Oak is a classic wood type with a pronounced open grain that takes stain beautifully. The stain absorbs into this open grain becoming darker where the grain is closed and lighter where the grain is more open. It is very durable with a good wear resistance. The grain pattern can help hide minor dents and wear. This is an ideal choice if you desire a warm and more traditional look.
Brown Maple Finishes
Brown Maple's smooth grain offers a more contemporary look and accepts stain beautifully. A lighter stain will best showcase the natural range of grain color while a darker stain will blend the grain colors together. Although a hardwood, it is more prone to scratches and dents with heavy use. A very popular wood for furniture as a dark stain creates a polished formal look while a lighter stain and paint achieves the look of country chic. The smooth textured grain blends well with other heavier grained pieces in your home.
Cherry has a uniform grain and some interesting grain patterns. When sanded, stained and polished it produces a beautiful smooth finish. Cherry ranges from light to dark reddish brown before a stain and will darken upon exposure to light. It has a rich history of being prodominantly used in high end furniture worldwide.
