White Pine is commonly found in eastern North America. It is not durable for heartwood decay.

Janka Hardness :

1,690 N(380 lbf)

Average Dried Weight :

400 kg/m3(25 lbs/ft3)

Western Red Cedar (Flat Cut & Vertical Grain)

Western Red Cedar (scientific name: Thujaplicata), has a heartwood red-pink brown color. Sapwood is narrow and pale yellow white, not always clearly distinguishable from heartwood. Its texture is medium to coarse, and grain is straight.

Western Red Cedar is commonly found in Pacific northwest United States and Canada. It is rated durable to very durable, is resistant to decay and is moderately resistant to insect attack.

Janka Hardness :

1,560 N(350 lbf)

Average Dried Weight :

370 kg/m3(23 lbs/ft3)

Workability :

It is easy to work with hand tools and machine tools. Softness means it dents and scratches very easily. Sanding can be uneven due to different densities of earlywood and latewood. It is good with glues and finishes well. Direct contact with iron can cause staining and discoloration, especially when moisture is present.

Zebra Wood

Zebra Wood, also called Zebrano(scientific name: Microberliniabrazzavillensis), has a heartwood of light brown to cream color with dark black-brown streaks, which resemble a zebra’s stripes. Its texture is coarse and open pores,and grain is generally wavy or interlocked.

Quarter cut/sawnlumber has mostly uniform stripes. Flat cut/sawnlumber has wavy stripes.

Zebra Wood is commonly found in west Africa. It is rated durable and resistant to insect attack.

Janka Hardness :

8,160 N(1,830 lbf)

Average Dried Weight :

805 kg/m3(50 lbs/ft3)

Workability :

It is good for sawing but very difficult to plane or surface because of an interlocking grain. Tear-out is also common. It is good with glues and finishes well. Pore filter may be required to resolve large open pores on light and dark surfaces.

Yellow Heart

Yellow Heart, also called Pau Amarello(scientific name: Euxylophoraparaensis), has a heartwood of pale to golden yellow color, which darkens with age. Sapwood is white or pale yellow. Its texture is fine, luster is high and grain is generally straight though with some waviness or interlocking.

Yellow Heart is commonly found in Brazil. It is moderately durable for resisting decay and insect attack.

Janka Hardness :

7,950 N(1,790 lbf)

Average Dried Weight :

825 kg/m3(52 lbs/ft3)

Workability :

Easy to work with hand tools and machine tools, but can be difficult if grain is interlocked or figured. It is good with glues and finishes well. It has a moderate blunting effect on cutting tools.

Douglas Fir (Flat Cut & Vertical Grain)

Douglas Fir (scientific name: Pseudotsugamenziesii) has a heartwood of light brown color with a hint or yellow or red (color varies with age and location of tree). Its texture is medium to coarse, luster is moderate and grain is usually straight, sometimes slightly wavy.

When quarter cut/sawn the grain is straight and plain. Flat cut/sawn wild grain patterns are seen.

Douglas Firis commonly found in western North America. It is moderately durable but prone to insect attack.

Janka Hardness :

2,760 N(620 lbf)

Average Dried Weight :

510 kg/m3(32 lbs/ft3)

Workability :

Good with machining operations but has blunting effect on cutting tools. Is good with glues and stains, and finishes well.

Wenge

Wenge(scientific name: Millettialaurentii), has a heartwood of medium brown color, occasionally with a red or yellow hue, and almost black streaks. Its texture is very coarse, and grain is straight.

Wengeis commonly found in central Africa. It is very durable and resistant to termite attack.

Janka Hardness :

8,600 N(1,930 lbf)

Average Dried Weight :

870 kg/m3(54 lbs/ft3)

Workability :

Difficult to work with hand tools and machine tools, with a significant blunting effect on cutting tools. Difference in density between light and dark areas makes sanding uneven. Propensity to splinter makes it hazardous to work with bare hands. For a smooth or level finish, large pores must be filled.

Tiger Wood

Tiger Wood, also called Tigerwood, Goncalo Alves, and Jobillo(scientific name: Astroniumgraveolens and A. fraxinifolium), has a heartwood of reddish brown color, with irregular streaks of black/dark brown. Its texture is fine and uniform, luster is good and grain is usually interlocked or wavy (sometimes straight).

Tiger Wood is commonly found in Mexico and southwards to Brazil. It is very durable, resists decay and has excellent weathering.

Janka Hardness :

9,640 N(2,170 lbf)

Average Dried Weight :

905 kg/m3(57 lbs/ft3)

Workability :

Not particularly difficult to work with despite high density. Lumber with irregular and figured grain can make machining and planing difficult. It has a moderate blunting effect on cutting tools. It is difficult to glue because of resistance to moisture absorption. It turns and finishes well.
