  • Choosing A Wood Species For Your Door

    With so many options for wood species, deciding which one to use for your door can be a difficult task. Different woods provide different characteristics. Using a less common wood species is a great way to add style to your home. Here is a breakdown of the different options available. Douglas Fir This wood is one of the most common and widely used species. Douglas Fir is generally used in construction but has qualities that make it beneficial for a door, such as its strength. The light color and straight grains easily take all paints and stains. Pine Pine is one of the softer woods. It can have fairly erratic grain as well as knots. This is great if you are looking for wood with character. It takes lighter stains, as well as paint, very well. Hemlock This wood has fine straight grains. It is generally a lighter wood with red tones along with it. Hemlock is one of the few species that will remain true to its natural color over time. This wood also takes stain and paint well. Oak This is also one of the most common species of wood used today. This hardwood is extremely durable and has strong pronounced grain patterns. It also may feature small knots for added character. It also accepts stains and paints easily. Maple Maple has a smooth and fine grain that has both lighter and darker tones. Throughout its life, it tends to change color due to exposure in natural light. This is a great material for interior doors. Poplar This is a great wood species for your budget. The soft subtle grain makes it perfect for paint. The wood can show varying shades, but most frequently has a yellow tint to it. Cherry Cherry is noticeably darker than many other wood species, however, it takes stain very easily. There are many different factors that give this wood its own distinct look, such as darker and lighter grains and small knots. Hickory Hickory is a very smooth wood with a strong and bold grain. The color variations can be managed by using a dark stain or paint. This rough texture provides a unique look to any application. Mahogany This is considered to be one of the most recognizable wood species. Mahogany has a deep tone and thinner and less visible grain. This provides a rich and natural look. There are many other wood species out there, however, these are some of the most common. At Douglas Lumber, we are able to customize your door in different wood grains, finishes, and styles.
