American Elm, as it is commonly known, is mostly distributed from the USA and Canada.
It has a medium reddish-brown heartwood and is usually quite straight grained.
Elm has a medium density and good mechanical properties for steam bending. Its good working properties mean that it cuts well, and will accept most types of adhesives, finishes, and stains.
Elm is suitable for most domestic projects, but would not be recommended for high moisture or humidity environments.
