BEECH – Fagus grandifolia
Beech , The wood is heavy, hard, tough and strong, and until the advent of power tools in the 20th century, lumbering beech trees were often left uncut to grow.
Physical & Mechanical Properties :
American beech is an important tree in forestry. The wood is heavy, hard, tough and strong, and until the advent of power. It has a high resistance to pressure and is very suitable for bending using steam.
Overall good workability; it machines well, and glues, can colored and polished a good finish. This wood fast enough but has a strong advantage for curved. Beech also responds superbly to steam-bending. It does, however, have a large amount of movement in service, so movement and wood stability must be taken into account.
Beech is considered non-durable or perishable, but can be penetrated by liquids for preservation.
American Beech is sometimes underrated and under-appreciated: which may be due to its somewhat bland appearance. Yet considering its decent strength and hardness—and its comparatively low cost—Beech represents an excellent value for woodworkers.
