Wood Species


One of the most visually interesting aspects of wood is the fact that no two boards look exactly alike. Every board has its own patterns. Likewise, each wood species has its own distinguishing grain, color, and texture. It’s the natural character of wood that brings personality to every product we make.



Brainerd Hardwoods offers a wide range of wood species, each with its own distinctive character. Some of our most popular species are shown below. All material is selected in compliance with the Quality Standard of the Architectural Woodwork Institute. Other wood species are available, including exotic imports, so contact us if you’re searching for a particular species that you don’t see listed.
