Wood: Birch, solid wood and cabinet grade engineered panels.
Birch is most usually compared with Maple wood in terms of its properties. Birch has a fine and uniform texture, closed pores and no significant odor. Due to Birch's closed pored structure, it stains and finishes to produce a beautiful and uniform finish with much less trouble than Maple wood. Birch is a favorite of woodworkers because it exhibits excellent machining properties and planes and sands to a smooth finish. Birch holds screws and nails securely and glues easily. Engineered birch panels are made from laminations of birch veneer and it is light but strong. It is among the strongest and most stable of all cabinet grade panels.
