We are pleased to offer the following timbers for manufacturing staircases,
Pine is a slow grown Scandinavian timber, an economical timber suitable for staining and painting. All knots in the timber are sound.
Southern Yellow Pine has distinctive character in both colour and grain. Although generally clear, a limited number of small knots are permitted. Grown in the Southern United States, it enjoys the reputation of being exceptionally strong and has a high resistance to wear. Whilst relatively easy to work this wood is comparable to hardwood species such as Oak for strength.
Sapele is a West African hardwood, with a reddish brown colouring, typical of Mahogany. This fairly close textured timber is harder and heavier than both American and South American Mahogany. As with any product, variation in colour is to be expected.
Oak American White. A strong, heavy hardwood grown in the Eastern half of the United States. Due to the high costs of large sections, newel posts and handrails are laminated, careful attention being paid to grain matching.
Ash American White. A quality American hardwood, Ash can be stained and polished to a very good finish
