Beech – Select

Select European Beech from TaylorCraft will be clear of defects and the inherent color, character marks and grain patterns will be closely inspected and matched to create a more uniform appearance than our Natural grades. Select grade is recommended when reduced variation in appearance is desired or when used with clear or lightly stained finishes. General characteristics of European Beech are: generally consistent in color and grain with a light cream-tan to light pink-tan in color with some dark mineral streaks. The grain is short, mostly straight, with fine, even texture. 
If you or your customers are not familiar with the species or our grading, we strongly recommend ordering a sample from TaylorCraft to prevent any misunderstanding.

Beech – Natural

Natural European Beech from TaylorCraft will be clear of pronounced defects but will possess inherent characteristics of the species in which only the extremes will be removed. Color and grain, while monitored, will vary more and will not be as uniform in appearance as our Select grade. Natural grade is recommended when natural color and grain variations are desired or acceptable such as when used with medium to dark stained finishes. General characteristics of European Beech are: generally consistent in color and grain with a light cream-tan to light pink-tan in color with some dark mineral streaks. The grain is short, mostly straight, with fine, even texture.

Beech – Paint Grade

Paint Grade European Beech from TaylorCraft will contain all inherent characteristics of the species but will not have open defects. No attention will be given to color or grain matching and no colors will be removed. Some small knots, splits or cracks may be filled. Standard guidelines for minimum panel stave widths and slab drawer sizes which allow glue ups may not be followed. While it can be stained, our paint grade is intended only for painted finishes. General characteristics of European Beech are: generally consistent in color and grain with a light cream-tan to light pink-tan in color with some dark mineral streaks. The grain is short, mostly straight, with fine, even texture.
