Beech is a plentiful, sustainable, carefully managed species. It is a hard, strong, durable wood with a fairly straight grain pattern and a relatively smooth surface. Knots and irregular grain may be present, but are generally kept to a minimum. Colors vary from light to mid-tone brown, with some dark brown heartwood streaks.

Rustic Beech shares the same attributes as Beech, and features a random blend of natural characteristics that occur much more frequently than in Beech.

When light to medium-colored stains are used, grain patterns and ray flecks will be more prominent. Darker stains will subdue the color variations and enhance the grain pattern.

A range of grain patterns and colors may appear on the same panel, and adjacent door and drawer fronts may not match each other. These are natural characteristics of Beech and are not considered a defect.
