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.
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.
