But as an ongoing project, I’ve begun The Wood Database, which is a much more exhaustive and thorough examination of all the different wood species, including data on hardness, strength, density, etc.
Lewis Lumber Products carries a variety of Hardwood and Softwood species, and many types of Exotics. Listed below you will find a photograph, common characteristics, and common uses of the most popular lumber varieties that we stock.
Some people call it African mahogany, though sapele is better then mahogany for cutting boards because it’s naturally resistant to moisture and a perfect density for kitchen knife blades. We stock walnut, maple, cherry, and sapele for our boards.
Wood plastic composites (WPC) were made from Nigerian mahogany (Khaya ivorensis) and teak (Tectona grandis) wood particles and high density polyethylene and evaluated. The WPC were tested for flexural properties, water sorption, melt flow and thermal properties.
American Plastic Lumber’s structural custom engineered extruded shapes are manufactured from blends of HDPE (high density polyethylene) resins. Additional proprietary additives and strengthening reinforcements are compounded into each product.
Abstract. We produced wood–plastic composite board by using sawmill wastage of mahogany (Swietenia macrophylla) wood and low density polyethylene.We used multi-response optimization to optimize the process parameters of composite board production including mixing ratio, fire retardant (%) and pressing time (min).
Wood Density and Moisture Content - Density of wood versus moisture content Wood Hardness - Soft and hardwood - Janka Hardness Wood Header and Supported Weight - The weight that can be supported by a double or triple wood header
Use of Relative Density-based Schedules in Kiln-D - Similar to Use of Relative Density-based Schedules in Kiln-D density or strength, and prone to warping and other drying- related defects largely due to The wood of big-leafed mahogany (Swietenia macrophylla.
Wood Density and Specific Gravity. The Following chart will tell you how much weight you can expect from your wood selection. A simple comparison of the lb/ft3 of cedar and any other species will tell you what you can expect in added weight.
Density of Wood. The mass of over 30 different species of wood are listed below. While the data is useful for the design and selection of wood, individual samples will differ.
Structural TI HDPE Lumber Technical Data American Plastic Lumber’s structural custom engineered extruded shapes are manufactured from blends of HDPE (high density polyethylene) resins. Additional proprietary additives and strengthening reinforcements are compounded into each product.
Wood density is determined by multiple growth and physiological factors compounded into “one fairly easily measured wood characteristic” (Elliott 1970).  Age, diameter, height, radial (trunk) growth, geographical location, site and growing conditions, silvicultural treatment, and seed source all to some degree influence wood density.
