Spruce, as it is commonly known, is mostly distributed from Noway, 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.
