Wood used for furniture and especially in the manufacture of chairs.
Beechwood distinguished itself in the forests of Chitern in southwest England, where the wood turners were known by “bodger” they turned the chairs feet and sleepers in pale pink hardwood. Beechwood continues to be greatly used in the furnishings of mass production, because it is very easy to work with, consistent and cheap. It is often painted or dyed continuing with good finishing. The woody rays that show like tiny little spots pints dark on cuted pieces in four and in blotters, have an unusual aspect.
