Hardwood comes to you from deciduous trees and broad-leaf evergreen trees. Each species of hardwood has its distinct properties; however, they all have some properties in common. Durable and attractive, hardwoods are an excellent wood for carving. The dense structure of hardwood makes it harder and heavier. One of the hardest and heaviest hardwoods is black ironwood. Hardwood timbers can also be recycled as they have a long life. Hardwood timbers are well suited for structural applications, like joists, lintels and roof beams and decking and cladding, and flooring and stairs.
Uses of Hardwood
The use of hardwood is a rarity in modern times as it is expensive and scarce. Cheaper alternatives like plastic or softwood have taken over in many applications. Hardwoods were traditionally used in furniture, flooring, utensils and construction. Hardwoods do not decay or rot easily, and thus hardwood products cost much more than softwoods. Besides flooring, utensils like spoons, chopsticks, bowls, plates, and knife handles as well as violins, guitars, pianos and hand drums are made from hardwood.
