European Beech, as it is commonly known, is widely distributed throughout Europe.
Its heartwood is a pale pink-brown colour, although it is common practice to steam the lumber and create a more reddish-brown tone. The grain is usually very straight and slight.
Beech is classed as a hardwood that has a medium density and good qualities for steam bending. This timber can be worked with hand tools with a moderate blunting effect.
It is generally a quick drying lumber that will warp and check during the drying process, and has a large movement in service.
Beech flooring is suitable for all domestic and some light commercial projects, but is now less commonly used for flooring.
