Wondering how to select the right hardwood for your furniture?  For most of our customers, wood color is the first priority when selecting a hardwood, followed by strength and durability.  At Vermont Woods Studios we offer exclusively American hardwoods that are harvested responsibly from well managed forests. 

Our favorite woods are black cherry, sugar maple, white oak and red oak, and black walnut.  We've assembled lots of information about each wood to help you make your decision.

One of the characteristics that customers are often surprised about is that some woods change colors over time, as they are exposed to light.  Black cherry is the most notable of these woods.  It can start out almost as light as maple wood, but over time it will mature and ripen to a deep, rich reddish brown color.

Have any questions about furniture hardwoods?   Give us a call!  We'll look forward to hearing from you.
