find there are three main sections that include the different kinds of wood with the grain that it was harvested and then on top of that you have the different types of species. All of the information is not very easily found online. The best source is your local school system. Most public school systems will have the information on their site or they can be obtained by calling their reference department.
One of the most important things to look at when doing the research for what kind of wood to use in your home is the lifespan of the wood. In most cases (especially pine) the lifespan of the wood is listed right on the front of the wood. While the lifespan is not that important in the beginning, you want to make sure it is long enough so that you won’t have to replace the furniture periodically over the lifespan of the wood. Some woods will not hold up to the wear and tear of a busy household very well.
When choosing which wood to use in your home, you want to be very careful. As you use the furniture over the lifespan of the wood, you want to be sure to keep track of the wear and tear of the furniture. If you have furniture which has a lot of wear and tear, you want to replace the furniture frequently. Other woods will only have a small amount of wear and tear but will hold up much better.
Some woods (like teak) are hard to come by. It is a little bit like trying to get water from a dry rock. If you do not know what kind of wood it is, then you want to call your wood expert for help because they can tell you what type of wood it is. Sometimes you can find it at a cheaper rate with a local auction house. Sometimes they will have it for free. If you do find it for free at an auction house or at a local garage sale, then that is fine. You want to make sure that if you do decide to buy from a garage sale or from an auction, that you get a better deal than what you would have gotten locally.
