Which wood species are used?
ASK: We use mainly Ash (Fraxinus excelsior). Ash has very good strength properties and beautiful looks thanks to its bright color with tones of brown / gray. The ash tree has naturally two colors. A light and a gray / brown color. The gray / brown color comes from the core of the tree and called for "brown heart". Brown heart is a purely visual attribute the tree has. Brown heart does not have better properties than the lighter ash wood in the outer part of the log . BEWOO do not grade in terms of color in our products. There may be widespread brown heart in all our Ash-products.
Oak, American: For dowels and other small wood items we use American oak.
Walnut, American: Some of our products are also made in American walnut. Sapwood do normally not occurring in our products in walnut.
