It is a hard, strong, close-grained wood.
It is excellent for machining and offers a fair resistance to splitting in nailing and screwing while it is also good for gluing.
The timber has reddish-brown heartwood with thin white sapwood and straight-grained pattern and is easy to paint, stain or bleach. Available 25mm, 38mm and 50mm.
Beech is a valuable timber suitable for furniture, flooring, handles, woodenware, bending stock and toys.
