Materials We Use


At Greenwood Country Furniture we are happy to make your furniture from any type of wood traditionally used for furniture making.

We find that Oak and Pine are by far the most popular with our customers, and are both excellent choices.


European Oak - (Quercus Robur)
Strong, durable oak timber has traditionally been used for houses, ships and furniture for centuries.

Today it is still one of the the best woods of choice for quality cabinet making. Strong and beautifully patterned with a rich colour range from honey to brown.



Scandinavian Pine - (Pinus Sylvestris)
Also known as Redwood, reflecting its rich colour range, Pine is ideal for furniture making.

Softer, yet strong, this easily worked wood finishes well, and its colour enhances with age and polishing.
