What is Steam Beech Wood?

North America, Europe, and Asia are all home to the beech tree. Beech is the common name for a particular species of tree. such as the Japanese beech, the American beech, the European beech, and many others. These are almost exact replicas of one another. These trees reach a height of between 100 and 130 feet (30–40 m).

Beech hardwood, which falls under the category of “hard-wearing” wood, is non-porous, has a solid density, and a robust surface. It will therefore withstand pressure, chipping, and gouging longer than certain other types of wood.

The sapwood is a pale yellow tone, while the heartwood has a red-white hue. After being treated with steam, heartwood turns red-brown. Beech wood is utilised to create veneer plywood, railroad ties, flooring, and furniture. Although beech is highly robust and hard, it isn’t really suited for long-term outdoor use because it doesn’t hold up well to fluctuations in moisture levels.


Hardwood is another name for beech wood. This hardwood is a go-to material for woodworkers due to its hardness, wear resistance, strength, and exceptional bending characteristics. Beech is capable of working well overall. It spins smoothly, glues, polishes, and is machined.


Beechwood has a low carbon footprint due to the carbon storage of living beech trees and the accessibility of many locally produced sources. Beech is more sustainable than woods with a declining population since the amount that is now harvested each year is less than new growth.
