Birch, yellow


(Betula alleghaniensis)

Yellow Birch heartwood tends to be a light reddish brown, with nearly white sapwood. Occasionally figured pieces are available with a wide, shallow curl similar to the curl found in cherry. There is virtually no colour distinction between annual growth rings, giving Birch a somewhat dull, uniform appearance. Grain is generally straight or slightly wavy, with a fine, even texture. Low natural lustre.

Generally easy to work with hand and machine tools, though boards with wild grain can cause grain tear out during machining operations. Turns, glues, and finishes well.The wood is rather hard with a Janka hardness of 1,260,

Common Uses: Veneer, Plywood, boxes, crates, turned objects, interior trim, and other small specialty wood items.
