WHAT WE DO

SOFT WOOD

Softwoods aren’t weaker than hardwoods. Softwoods come from coniferous trees such as cedar, fir, and pine and tend to be somewhat yellow or reddish. Because most coniferous trees grow fast and straight, softwoods are generally less expensive than hardwoods.

It’s also relatively easy to find sustainable grown softwoods (woods grown on tree farms to ensure an endless supply of wood); this means you’re not contributing to the deforestation of the world and will always have a supply of wood for your projects. At OWR because the wood has been reclaimed it is definitely not contributing to deforestation.

Home Wood

Hard woods come from broad leaved trees. These trees have flowers and produce seeds such as nuts and fruit). Examples are oak, beech and mahogany.
Hardwoods are denser than softwoods and are stronger and more durable too. They are used for furniture making. Beech is often used for making toys. Hardwoods are much more expensive than softwoods.

Plywood

made up from alternating layers of thin sheets of wood is strong in all directions.

Mahogany

One of the great furniture woods, mahogany (also called Honduran mahogany) has a reddish-brown to deep-red tint, a straight grain, medium texture, and a hardness of around 2 on a scale of 1 to 5. It takes stain very well and looks great with just a coat (or 10) of oil.

The only drawback is that mahogany isn’t being grown in sustainable forests. That’s why Oxford Wood Recycling is a great place to find this type wood and similar like Iroko from West Africa.
