The various types of imported wood from Russia are referred to as Russian wood, and they vary depending on the tree species. Among them, you can mention types such as birch, yew, sassafras, pine (white wood), oak, and so on.
“Yulka Wood: This type of wood has an eggshell-white color, is soft and easy to cut, and is quite common due to its suitable strength. It is used in construction materials, interior decoration, and more.”
“Sassafras Wood: This type of wood has a pinkish or reddish-white color with a dense and firm texture. Compared to yulka, it has larger and more prominent knots as one of its distinguishing features.”
“White Wood: Its white color, soft texture, and lower cost compared to other types of wood have made consumers choose it based on their needs.”
“Oak Wood: This type of wood has a reddish-brown color, high strength, and a higher price compared to other types of Russian wood available in the market. Due to its properties, it is used in the production of furniture and more.”
How can we identify good wood with minimal experience
For individuals with sufficient experience in purchasing and using wood, identifying wood quality is not very challenging. However, if you want to identify good wood by considering a few simple parameters, start by observing its color. Fresh and high-quality wood should have a light color and not be discolored. Another parameter is the absence of mold and any decline in the wood, which can be easily identified with a simple glance.
Depending on the type of wood and its intended use, the amount and size of knots should be appropriate.
Finally, it’s important to understand that wood is produced by a living organism and is not always uniform in texture and appearance.
