European Beech

European Beech is a versatile hardwood, displaying much of the durability of oak with a more subdued grain pattern (similar to maple, but grainier). Its overall coloration will vary from a light tan to mid-tone brown with occasional streaks of dark brown heartwood. Color variations will usually be somewhat more subdued with darker colors, though grain patterns may become more prominent. European Beech is a great choice for those who want a species between Oak and Maple.
