Birch Wood

There are thirty-five known varieties of birch, but the three principally used in woodenware are: paper or white birch, yellow birch, and red or cherry birch. The wood is close-grained, hard, tough, and takes a high polish. The yellow and red birches are heavy, of average stiffness and strength, and more than average toughness. Birch is used for clothes-pins, washboards, broom handles, and carpet-sweepers.
