Construction & Materials Information:
This line of Canadian platform beds and casegoods are made from Canadian birch veneers. Birch is typically found growing in colder northern climates. This species of tree is closely related to the beech and oak family of trees. What makes birch a great choice in lumber is its tensile strength and the ease of being grown from seeds and sapplings. All birch has a finely, uniformed texture with closed pores and no significant aroma. Closed pores means that the wood is easier to stain and finish making it a great choice for use in furniture, flooring, violins and many other products. Birch loses almost 15% of its volume when going from green lumber to dry lumber as it air dries. This is considered to be a fair amount of shrinkage when compared to other species of wood. Birch has a tendency to warp and twist during air drying if enough weight is not applied to the wood. Once dried, birch is very stable and easy to work with. Birch has very attractive characteristics. It's a straight-grained wood that has a fine and even texture. Birch trees can reach sixty five feet in height and about thirty inches in diameter.
Some interesting facts about birch. The First Nations of North America prized birch for its bark. Its bark could be easily stripped from fallen birch trees and the wood was often used in the construction of wigwams, bowls and lightweight canoes. Hardwood birch trees also exhibit excellent short-fibre pulp qualities and are used in making printing paper. Birch wood is sometimes used as a tonewood due to its natural resonance in high and low frequencies. You'll find it used in the construction of speaker cabinets and prior to the 1970's was used in drum manufacturing. Another quite popular use for birch is for acoustic and semi-acoustic guitar bodies as well as solid-body guitars. Some species of birch produce a sap that can be processed into a syrup, vinegar or birch wine. Birch syrup is quite difficult to produce and is more expensive than other food syrups but not considered as sweet.
