Steamed Beech (Fagus sylvatica)
The wood is light-coloured, with a closed cell structure, very hard and abrasion-proof and takes staining very well. Beech timber is an excellent choice for all interior applications. Furniture, interior fitting, flooring, toys and pencils are but a few examples of the many possibilities of use. As far as optics are concerned, beech timber allows for numerous design alternatives: from „select / knots-free“ to redheart and „coloured“ by stain, laquer or oils, everything is possible. For exterior use, however, beechwood is not suited due to its expansion and shrinking reactions according to moisture content.
