E&G Amish Furniture offers over 20 Ohio Certified Standard (OCS) stains in 6 species of wood.
Each wood effects the stain differently, due to the density and grain pattern that is distinctive to the species of wood.
Quarter Sawn White Oak is a denser wood with white undertones and tiger striping, that produces a beautiful, even stain. The grain is interrupted with striping caused by cutting the wood at a quarter of an angle, creating small sections of clear wood with little grain within the larger sections of grain.
Cherry grain is smooth to the touch, combined with soft swirls and marbling throughout, results in a beautiful stain. The soft wood has a slight variation, which results in a small changes in light to dark, in an overall even stain. The wood itself has a red undertone, giving the stain applied a slight red hue.
