15 Common Kinds of Wood and What They’re Used For

An infographic detailing various kinds of popular woods and their uses. Soft woods like pine, spruce, fir, teak, and cedar. Hard woods like oak, poplar, ash, beech, alder, balsa, cherry, mahony, and maple. Finally, even composite wood pulp is discussed. By the infographic’s ends, you should have a very good sense of which woods would be appropriate for which uses and tasks. For example, oak for furniture, flooring, and cabinetry. Ash for furniture, flooring, doors, carpentry, moulding, and baseball bats. If you have composite wood pulp, you’ll be interested in walls, roofing, sub-flooring, furniture, cabinets, and just general purpose uses. If you have a bowling alley to build, use maple. Boat bodies? Mahogany would be a perfect fit. Decking and fencing? Try some cedar for the win. Whatever you need that can be made from wood, something in this infographic will be perfect for it. So dive right in and ogle these wonderful, wonderful woods.
