Historically, birch's bark was famous for making canoes, and subsequently used for centuries in making all types of household items as well as enhancing interiors in many ways, including its use as hardwood flooring board. Yellow birch hardwood often features curling patterns in the grain that make it stand out among hardwoods. The wood is characterized by a fine, uniform texture, making it perfect for attractive hardwood flooring board.
It is widely used for furniture framing and carcass construction, flooring and engineering purposes and in plywood, but rarely as a decorative timber.Chips of beech wood are used in the brewing of beer to impart a taste similar to that of wood-barrel aging. Beech logs are burned to dry the malts used in German smoked beers, to give the beers their typical flavor.
Another popular variety of hardwood flooring board is white ash. It is characterized by the density and strength of the wood itself, making it a logical choice for its use as a hardwood flooring board. Among other things, it is the timber of choice for production of baseball bats, tool handles and furniture. White ash trees have an average natural lifespan of 100 years
