genus Malus


While similar in appearance to Black Cherry, Applewood has a bit more variation in grain coloration and doesn’t redden as much over time as Cherry.   Apple trees are not large, and this fact impedes Applewood’s use in furniture, paneling, and commercial availability – a shame, given Applewood’s handsome appearance and fine working qualities.  In addition to being used for small decorative purposes, Applewood wood chips are often used for smoking meats.  While we don’t suggest you ignite our gaming accessories for smoking meats, it is nice to know that you have the option.
