The woods we use in our solid-wood kitchens

Tulipwood

Also known as American Tulipwood, Tulip Poplar or Yellow Poplar, (although it's not actually a Poplar as such). This is an American hardwood, selected for our kitchens because of it's stability and suitability for painting.

 

American Lime

Also known as Basswood, American Basswood, Lime or Linden; another stable hardwood with no knot bleeding problems for painted kitchens.

 

Oak

A beautiful wood for anyone wanting a natural wood finish. Our solid oak kitchens are either finished with a two-part/two-pack lacquer, or are oiled.

 

Pine

Solid pine is often used for the internal frames or carcasses of our kitchens, in places where knot bleeding would not be an issue.
