Types Of Wood
Solid Wood: The parent of hard and soft wood

Hardwood: No it’s not all hard and durable
Contrary to the popular and ignorant belief, hardwoods are not the supreme species of hardwood found in nature. It simply means that it comes from ‘deciduous trees’. These species of trees sheds its leaves annually. It may be harder or softer than the softwood depending on its geographical location and innate built. They are mostly used as furniture. Hard woods: Mahogany, Walnut, Oak, Maple, Cherry, Birch
