Cherry is easily identifiable by its distinctive reddish brown color and straight grain. It`s a stiff, strong wood that will add some expense to your shelves. However, it`ll look fantastic. Other premium woods include maple and oak. You`ll pay more, but these durable shelves will last a long time and add value to the room you put them in. For some, that`s more than worth the extra cost.
You can easily make use of a shelving unit in order to divide a room or show off your belongings. They can be used to place books, photo frames, clocks and various other decorative items. You may buy them either ready made or custom built. Regardless of which type you choose to install, they are certainly going to enhance your wall space. When you go into a market, you will find a whole lot of these shelves. They are also available in different shapes like rectangular, round, square and triangular.
Different woods have different properties. Alder, for instance, is a light, easy to stain wood with no particular grain pattern and a very consistent color. It doesn`t have a lot of resistance to shock, however, so you shouldn`t try using it for shelves that might be easily dinged or damaged. Birch is another light colored wood that stains well, but it`s strong and hard, and has a noticeable fine wavy grain. Aspen is similarly light and evenly grained. It`s also very easy to find in shelves.
