Branch beech - wood from German forests

natural oiled branch beech

The branch beech is not a beech species of its own, but the wood of the beech heartwood.

In order to accentuate the structure of knotholes and cracks even more, these areas are deliberately and visibly treated with a knot filler made of natural materials.


Beech - wood from German forests

Buche – Holz aus heimischen Wäldern

The beech forms straight, full-wooded and long-shaft trunks with (almost) knot-free lengths of up to 15m. As a medium to large tree, the beech reaches heights between 30m and 35m.

As a so-called heartwood tree, the beech shows an irregular colour core formation, which can vary from a uniform pale yellowish to reddish-white colour.


Red beech / beech heartwood - wood from German forests

Rotkernige Buche - Ein Wertstoff mit einzigartigem Charakter

Solid wood furniture has very different faces due to the natural raw material wood. This applies in a very special way to the red core beech.

From an age of approx. 100 to 120 years, beech wood can undergo a wood-specific process in which reserve substances are converted into coloured constituents by penetrating oxygen. From this transformation the red core is created, which makes this wood so unique.

This colour variation impressively demonstrates the growth of this wood over many years and decades. At the same time it gives the wood a lively and individual character.

The local red heartwood beech combines the technical properties of beech with unique and unusual beauty. The processing of this wood makes it possible to create pieces of furniture of the same design with completely different "faces". Each one is unique in nature. Furniture made of red beech with its warm grace and beautiful design can set appealing accents in any living room.

The special feature of this wood makes special demands on the processing. As one of the first German manufacturers we have been producing furniture made of red core beech since 2002. Our many years of experience as a manufacturer of solid wood and in particular our own glued wood panel production help us to process this valuable raw material carefully.

Further information on this resource can be found in the Holzabsatzfonds brochure.


Beech finger-jointed - wood from German forests

Beech finger-jointed

The beech forms straight, woody and long-shaft trunks with (almost) knot-free lengths up to 15m. As a medium to large tree, beech reaches heights between 30m and 35m.

Wedge-jointed means that two solid wood parts are interlocked by wedge-shaped tines and are

are bonded. This results in an extremely stable and almost distortion-free connection between 

shorter pieces of wood into a theoretically infinitely long piece of

oak

Eiche

After beech, the native oak is the most important native hardwood species, accounting for about 8% of the total German forest area. At the same time it is one of the most valuable wood species.

Oaks are extremely long-lived and are among the oldest indigenous trees to grow. An age of 500 to 800 years is not unusual for this tree species. You can find more details about the oak under Infoholz Eiche.

Frequently perceived as the classic German tree, oak is once again becoming increasingly important. The oak used to be covered with "rustic" and "dark", but today it is a light, modern material.


Oak bianco oiled

Eiche bianco geölt

Oak bianco oiled is today a light and modern material that fits in with our times. Furniture made of this wood with its play of colours sets special accents in every living room and convinces with its lively and individual character. Expressive and extremely representative.


wild oak

Wildeiche

The trees are selected which have as many branches as possible and therefore grow at the edge of the forest or in shady locations.

Typical characteristics of wild oak are knots (many and in different sizes and accumulations) and colour differences.

Wild oak bianco oiled is today a bright and modern material that fits into our time. Furniture made of this wood with its play of colours sets special accents in every living room and convinces with its lively and individual character.

A characteristic feature of the ash oak is the particularly pronounced play of colours of the grain.

The consciously visible cracks and knots are treated here with a knot filler made of natural materials. These give the solid wood an expressive and unique liveliness.
