Appearance

The torrefaction process turns the wood a beautiful chocolate brown and the curl can range from tight to loose (sometimes called flame). Oil finishes will make this flame figure jump out of the surface which will draw the eye. The lack of colour distinction between annular growth rings however, gives it a somewhat boring, homogenous appearance.

Workability

Roasted Curly Birch works equally well with hand and power tools, keeping in mind that figured boards will be prone to tearout. There are no concerns with glues or finishes and it also turns well.

Uses

It’s suitable for furniture, decorative objects, doors, trim, and panelling.

Additional Comments

Birch is a great species to use as a secondary wood for hidden furniture components, drawer sides.
