WOOD HARDNESS

It all starts with wood hardness!   We are always asked which wood is better when customers make a 

purchase.   In our opinion, there are no “better” woods, but varying characteristics that impact the durability

and look of your furniture.  It might be easy to say that pine is soft and maple is hard, but how much harder

is it?  How do all the different wood species stack up against one another.  Well, the answer is known as the

JANKA rating.  The Janka Rating is a number generated by a test perfomed in accordance with the standards

defined in the American Society of Testing and Methods (ASTM) test number ASTM D 1037-12.  This test was

primarily designed to objectively evaluate the wear characteristics of flooring material.  These test results

however, can be applied to furniture to provide an overview of the potential mar and/or wear resistance of

furniture built from various wood species.  We compiled the following table containing Jenka ratings of some

of the most popular wood species, including all the various wood types your furniture can be made from 

through AMERICAN WOODLINE.  These are identifed with a black line for easy identification. If you would
