Whitewashed Poplar

As seen in the Loft Bed Without Storage, our whitewashed poplar offers a modern look on a wood that has a traditional texture and grain. Whitewashed woods convey a clean, airy, and minimal aesthetic, while feeling right at home with beachy, rustic, and vintage-inspired environments. 

Poplar is a deciduous flowering plant of the genus Populus, and is used for a wide range of commercial products including millwork, paper, musical instruments, and even the production of shiitake mushrooms. Historically, poplar was the most common wood used in Italy for panel paintings (fun fact: the Mona Lisa is framed on poplar). Its high energy intake and output combined with its rich agricultural yield makes poplar an attractive candidate for use in energy crops. Poplar is fast growing and as such is a renewable forest crop.

Due to the lightness of this finish and the variety in tone of the wood, whitewashed poplar tends to reflect surrounding materials. For example in our workshop (white walls and cool, gray concrete floors), the grays and blues in the wood are highlighted. Put a whitewashed poplar bed in a room with oak floors and walls of a warmer hue, and you will see ...More

White Oak

White Oak is one of the most biologically successful hardwoods in North America. A symbol of strength and steadfastness, White Oak possesses a stunningly light grain, giving it a bright and wholesome character. White Oak is incredibly durable due to its tight-knit grain, and has been used historically for a wide range of applications including railroad sleepers, fences, baskets, agricultural tools, carts and coaches, shipbuilding, flooring, millwork, and of course furniture.

At Chadhaus, we use a variety of White Oak species, including Quercus alba (eastern North American White Oak) and Quercus garryana (Oregon White Oak). Our woods are primarily quarter- or rift-sawn, ensuring the most stable furniture possible. How a board is cut from the log is directly related to its appearance and behavior when used in furniture. Quarter-sawn wood exposes the natural internal rays of the tree, which are particularly beautiful in white oak. This type of cut is extremely durable, as the annual rings are laid across the end grain of the boards, allowing for less expansion and contraction of the wood. 

We offer both natural and whitewash finishes on our oak furniture. For an example of natural oak, see our More

Big Leaf Maple

Big Leaf Maple, also referred to as broadleaf maple, Oregon maple, or Acer macrophyllum, is native to coastal regions of Pacific North America. While slightly less hard than eastern soft maple, bigleaf maple possesses a close-knit grain that can result in graceful, shimmering lines when polished. Stunning burls can also be found in bigleaf maple lumber, resulting in a particularly figured wood.

Big Leaf maple is a highly valuable tree in the native forests of western North America. In Washington and Oregon, Big Leaf maple is traditionally used for interior construction, furniture, axe handles, and broomsticks, while serving as shade and street trees in all of the Pacific states.

We currently have some beautiful maple harvested from Bainbridge Island, Washington. While we don't currently have any projects pictured in the finish, we will be adding images soon so stay tuned!

Western Walnut

Our walnut is sourced from multiple locations throughout the Pacific Northwest, primarily the Willamette Valley. High levels of naturally-occurring glacial sediment (glacial till) throughout this region influence the grain pattern and color variation of the wood. The unique nature of subspecies and hybrids in the Pacific Northwest also contributes to these variations, sometimes casting hues of grey, purple, or red. Part of the genus Juglans (J.), our walnut is not from a single source, but rather multiple native strains. J. nigra – commonly known as American Black Walnut, is primarily native to the Midwest and east-central United States. It was brought to the west coast by early settlers. J. hindsii  a native species of northern California - found its place in Oregon’s Willamette Valley in the mid-1800′s. Settlers who came to this region began growing this species for its timber and food source (you guessed it…walnuts!). It is commonly referred to as Oregon black walnut, Claro walnut, and Northern California walnut. J. californica, which is native to California, is commonly referred to as California black walnut, Southern ...More
