Cherry, a favorite admired by American craftsmen. Sometimes you can almost smell the fruit, it also develops a lovely patina with age. Apple, a much lighter colored wood, it has a faint likeness to burl in some pieces, it is very hard, and again a very traditional wood.
White pear, a beautiful wood often highlighted with aggressive graining and distinctive brown tones. This is a traditional wood used for centuries in the making of Corzetti pasta stamps. Apricot, a more difficult wood to find, but we wanted some for the collection. It's a lighter wood than the pear but is beatifully grained and is even harder to turn than pear.
