Biedermeier table in elm wood for kitchen or study

Elm wood is a type of hardwood known for its durability, strength, and distinctive grain patterns. Here is some information about elm wood:

  1. Species: Elm is a broad term that encompasses various species of trees belonging to the Ulmus genus. The most commonly used elm species for woodworking include American Elm (Ulmus americana), European Elm (Ulmus minor), and English Elm (Ulmus procera).
  2. Characteristics:
    • Grain: Elm wood typically has an interlocked grain pattern that can create attractive and wavy figures, especially when it is quarter-sawn.
    • Color: The color of elm wood can vary from light tan or pale yellow to medium brown with reddish or grayish streaks.
    • Texture: Elm wood has a fine to medium texture with a natural luster.
  3. Durability: Elm wood is known for its strength and toughness. It has excellent shock resistance and is often used for applications where durability is essential.
  4. Common Uses:
    • Furniture: Elm wood has been historically used for making furniture, including chairs, tables, and cabinets.
    • Flooring: Its durability makes elm wood suitable for hardwood flooring.
    • Boat Building: Due to its resistance to water and decay, it has been used in boat building.
    • Musical Instruments: Some musical instruments, particularly pianos, have components made from elm wood.
    • Carvings: Elm’s fine grain makes it suitable for intricate carvings and decorative applications.

Overall, elm wood is prized for its strength, attractive appearance, and workability in various woodworking projects. However, its availability can be limited in some regions due to disease issues, making it a less common choice in contemporary woodworking compared to other hardwoods.

As simple this table looks like it is a piece of art like this lamp which would look nice together. Adding a Art Deco desk set can be a nice mix of different times.
