All About Grades

Grades are the timber industry’s way of telling whether a piece of timber is good for the job. Whether it’s strong enough, what mix of grain & knots it has, what sort of colouring it has, all sorts of things.

A really good guide to the visual characteristics of English hardwoods is the publication Making the Grade, download it here for your own perusal!
