Hemlock Wood Veneer Information
Western North American Hemlock is the Washington State tree. It grows through out the Northwest but the stands in Alaska and Canadian forests are the largest. Hemlock can also be found in Eastern North America and some Asian countries. Western Hemlock has a little finer grain than its Eastern cousin. In the veneer world it can be difficult to come up with an abundance of Architectural grade material. The wood is prone to latex stain, rapid decay and black streaks caused by the black fly maggot. We try to keep both flat cut and quarter cut hemlock in inventory. This is a wood that can have rustic charm on one hand yet be contmporary on the other. When it comes to matching, random plank is the easiest to achieve, but most folks want a book or slip match sequence. We have and will do sequential flat and quarter cut lay ups just keep in mind that it can be difficult to come up with large architectural sequences but it's not impossible.
