Spruce is mostly distributed from Norway, Scandinavia, and Eastern Europe.
Its heartwood has a white to pale yellow colour. It is fine straight grained containing clusters of small knots with clearly marked annual rings.
Spruce is classed as a softwood that has a medium density and good qualities for steam bending. This timber can be worked with hand tools with a low blunting effect except when in contact with knots where there is a noticeable blunting effect.
It is generally a fairly rapid drying lumber and can be kiln dried satisfactorily. There is a small amount of movement in service.
Spruce flooring is suitable for low usage domestic projects. It is commonly used for a more traditional period look and is sometimes used in homes that are being faithful to the Scandinavian ideals.
While we do not currently stock any Spruce floors, we can recommend Oak floors or Maple flooring as suitable alternatives. If you’re looking for the on-trend Scandinavian look, have a look at our Country and Coastal collection.
