Cherry. Cherry wood is possible the most popular in furniture making. Cherry has a rich, beautiful color, making it the perfect choice for nearly any piece of furniture. Manufacturers appreciate the flexibility of cherry wood. Another great feature is its smooth grain!

Walnut. We love walnut furniture! This species of wood offers a straight-grained hardwood look and a wide range of color. You can choose a lighter more yellow color or a dark chocolate brown. It’s all up to you! Typically, walnut is used for headboards, antique-style dining tables, and mantels.

Oak. People tend to appreciate oak because of its unique look. It’s very grainy, and you can choose from red or white oak. The red variety ranges from brown to pinkish red and has a swirling, water-like pattern. Meanwhile, the white variety has a tiger-stripe grain with yellow rays and flecks.

Maple. If you’re looking a wood species that will be durable and can handle heavy-duty use, maple is for you. It’s perfect for a dresser or chest as maple is the hardest type of wood around. You are also sure to love its creamy white hardwood that can occasionally reveal a reddish color.

Pine. For those of you who love lightweight, trendy, rustic furniture pieces, you’ll want to choose pine. This wood is perfect for farmhouse-style tables and can be identified by its yellowish, whiteish color and brown knots.
