Texas Woods

This April, we have 2 shows in Texas. That got us to thinking about the kinds of woods that come from Texas. Since all of our boxes feature wood that is not stained or dyed, the beauty of natural wood shows through, and we think the types of wood that goes into each box is essential.

We use the following types of wood from the continental US:
  • Ash
  • Cedar
  • Cherry
  • Maple
  • Olive
  • Rosewood
  • Mahogany
  • Hack Berry
  • Holly
  • Walnut
  • Walnut Burl
  • Madrone Burl
  • Ambrosia Maple
  • Birds Eye Maple
  • Curly Maple
  • Curly Ash
  • Curly Cherry

The following types of trees grow in Texas:
  • Oak
  • Pecan
  • Ash
  • Mesquite
  • Palm

Only Ash is grown in Texas that we also use in our boxes. In fact, most of our hardwoods come from Asia, Africa, and South America!
