Before understanding furniture construction, style design or color combinations, a furniture builder must understand wood species.

The Palettes by Winesburg Wood Guide is meant to educate you about each individual species of wood: their history, usage, natural markings, coloration and other common facts. Also included is a special section covering proper care for your wood product, including the use of polish and cleaner, to ensure your investment will last for years to come.


The beauty of solid wood is that it is a natural product and no two pieces are alike. Trees endure long winters and dry summer heat, grow at various rates, and suffer broken branches and other disfigurements- all of which give each piece its own unique fingerprint. These natural markings are why people buy solid wood.


Did you know that most woods, even cherry, darken in open light? For example: if you put a placemat on a new cherry table, even in normal room light, the exposed surface can darken one shade in as little as a few days.

Wood species will also naturally expand or contract if exposed to high or low humidity levels. In most cases, these changes make no noticeable difference, but extreme humidity can cause problems for your furniture. 

We hope you enjoy the furniture as much as we enjoyed making it for you!


Prunus serotina

Cherry’s heartwood appears in shades of brown with strong or light hints of red, and the sapwood is cream colored. The wood has a fine, uniform, straight grain and a satiny, smooth texture. It may contain naturally occurring brown flecks and small gum pockets. Cherry has long been considered the gold standard for fine furniture, wood doors and millwork.

History: Historically, the cherry tree has been heralded for fruit and home furnishings, but it is also used for medicinal purposes such as the production of drugs that treat bronchitis from the bark and creation of tonics from cherry stalks. Printmakers have also created their engraving blocks with cherry.

Current uses: Furniture, paneling, flooring and millwork, kitchen cabinets, moldings, doors and musical instruments.

Characteristics: Only a small percentage of all cherry logs qualify for standard cherry and contain only a small amount of gum streaks and pin knots. Both red heartwood and white sapwood colors will darken with age.



Maple is usually straight-grained and offers a fine, relatively even texture. Its sapwood is cream colored, and the heartwood is beige.

Common names: Red maple, silver maple, box elder, scarlet maple, swamp maple, and water maple.

History: A maple’s fruit are called samaras or maple keys. Often called whirlybirds or helicopters, they contain a seed attached to a flattened wing of fibrous, papery tissue. Their shape allows them to spin as they fall and to carry the seeds a considerable distance on the wind. In the early spring maples are tapped for sap, which is then turned into maple syrup, maple sugar or maple taffy. It takes about 40 liters of sugar maple sap to make a liter of syrup.

Current uses: Furniture, paneling, flooring, millwork, kitchen cabinets, moldings, doors, musical instruments, kitchen utensils, toys, sporting goods, crates, pallets, furniture framing and turnings.

Characteristics: Maple grain may contain wavy patterns known as tiger maple or curly maple. The heartwood is tan or medium grey.


Quercus alba

The white oak is one of the preeminent hardwoods of eastern North America. From the family Fagaceae, it populates the Midwest, reaching south to Florida and as far north as Quebec. Specimens are known to have lived over 600 years.

History: White oak is impervious to liquids, and has been used extensively for ship timbers, barrels and casks. White oak is the state tree of Connecticut, Illinois and Maryland.

Current uses: Furniture, flooring and millwork, kitchen cabinets, moldings, doors, furniture framing and barrel staves.

Characteristics: The term quartersawn refers to the way the log was cut. Below is an illustration that shows how this is done. The reason for doing this is to capture the medullary rays or “flakes” that create an authentic old world look. With the right stains, the flakes take on a majestic shimmer.
