BEECH – Fagus grandifolia
Beech (Fagus Sylvatica)
Beech is wood that is most widely used both in industry and artisanship. Beech is usually pale beige with a brown or pink hue. It has very light color, almost white. It assumes that the best rosy tone as the result of steaming and kilning processes. On the entire surfaces of cut will appear medullary rays. They will characterize the design, especially on the tangential ones, where they appear as sharp as spindles. It is a durable (anti-insect), versatile, sturdy, moderately hard and heavy wood.
For the distribution, this beech is distributed almost all over the world. two of them are in Continental Europe and Asia.
Fagus Sylvatica is common European beech that grows up naturally in the land of Denmark, Sweden, and Southern Norway. The border the European deciduous forest zone and the northern pine forest zone is restricted by the beech forest. As growing up freely and naturally, the border is really significant for the life of flora and fauna. In addition, it is a sharp line along the Swedish western coast, which gets broader toward the south.
East Asia is the home of five Fagus species. There is only one species named F. Crenata sometimes is planted in Western countries. Japanese beech which is smaller than F. Sylcatica and F. Crenata is the most common used hardwoods in its native range.
Beech is a fine wood which is simple to work it. Overall is good workability. It glues, machines, turns, and finishes well. It has very subtle finish as well. Once steaming it, this beech can be rotary cut, that’s why it can be worked for plywood.
Beech wood blend in with virtually any shade of color. You can apply it for musical instruments, toys, kitchen utensils, furniture, wood floors, turning devices, veneers, and of course plywood.
