Description:

Many English cabinetmakers consider wych elm to be the finest English hardwood. With its mixtures of green, red, brown and gold, wych elm has a chatoyancy that is only surpassed by the finest koa. When wych elm is heavily burled few can argue its supremacy as one of the most sensational of all timbers. These elms are under distress by the Dutch elm disease.

Note: All pictures of boards that appear wet, have been wiped with denature alcohol to help show natural color. We use denature alcohol because it evaporates and does not effect the moisture content of the wood. Also, please keep in mind that the pictures below are only examples of the wood and not actual products available for sale.
