Hardwood is wood from those trees that have a more complex structure. They are usually broad-leaved and are mostly woods from deciduous trees such as oak, teak and cherry.
As their name suggests, the wood from these trees is generally harder than softwoods and can be easily characterized by the presence of pores and spiral bindings.
As Hardwood holds up well it is used for furniture construction and flooring where strength, splendour or stability matter.
ESD imports Hardwood from Myanmar (Gurjan), Malaysia (Balau / Keruing), Cameroon (Padouk, Beli, Belinga), Indonesia (Red Meranti, Marbau), America and Europe (White Oak, Red Oak, White Ash, Steam Beech, White Beech, Maple and Walnut).
