Looking for hi-res images of hardwood lumber, various species such as Maple, Walnut, Cherry, Oak, Mahogany, etc. It is critical that each image is identifiable as its species- looking at myriad images of wood does us no good. We do not need images of the wood in use, such as furniture or cabinetry. This is for a web site for a lumber distibution company. Thank you.

So you are looking for Rough Sawn and not S4S, correct?

Ummmm, to capture the color/grain of a species, you'd have to be shooting something that's been surfaced, and possibly finished with a clear topcoat. The viewer wouldn't see whether the board had been surfaced on multiple faces (S4S), they would only see color in 2 dimensions from edge to edge.

but I am suspecting that you don't want that type of photo - or the flooring above - right ???  because you said


"We do not need images of the wood in use, such as furniture or cabinetry" 


So are you just looking for planks with a bit of coating on them like you described above?

I have plenty of wood, but I think it is not what you are after. Just three samples

Thank you to those who have responded. I'm afraid I can't figure out how to reply to jut one respondent- so this will be public, I guess. Meadowmouse: the photo you included could be any of dozens of species, which illustrates the challenge I'm facing. (Walnut, pine stained to look like a darker species, maple  "  "  ", Alder, cherry...). Other than seeing cathedral grain pattern indicating flatsawn lumber, I wouldn't even guess. We deal with identification issues every day in our business, so it is critical that we not contribute to the confusion. We must know the source of the photos that we use.


Jonathansloane: tread cautiously at the flooring place (no pun intended, though it was pretty good, huh?). Flooring manufacturers create names for marketing purposes that do not necessarily reflect the species they're using. "Makati Maple", "Brazilian Walnut", "Cortez Teak", "Lava Rosewood", "Brazilian Cherry", "WTF???". Botanists all over the world are crying in their petri dishes.

If you have samples, you might want to volunteer to send them to someone on the board who could shoot and upload them. Then you'll know what they are.

Kevin, I shot 25 flooring samples. I think you will like them. Most are fairly generic, white oak, red oak, maple and the like, but there are more exotic things like teak, rosewood, sapele, and some pretty nice chestnut, heart pine and antique reclaimed oak.


As a matter of fact, I was floored by how many different woods there were.

funny play on words...'floored' by wood. LOL


 


Are you saying you want shots from a lumberyard or wood that has been sawed? or actual timber? To me, lumber means cut and ready for use to build with wood, not wood made already for flooring?

Most of the images in this lightbox are identified by species

14 shots have been accepted so far. They are in this lightbox, however since they were just accepted they will not be visible in the lightbox yet.

The other shots are still in the queue. Until the lightbox shows up, here are the thumbs. Hope these work for you!

I've got one or two


European (English) Walnut (Juglans regia)


file_thumbview_approve


European Oak (Quercus robur)


file_thumbview_approve


European Ash (Fraxinus excelsior) It came from a log of English ash although it looks somewhat like Japanese


file_thumbview_approve


English Elm (Ulmus procera I'm fairly sure)


file_thumbview_approve


And finally a slice from a laburnum log. Not sure of the sub-species

Timber identification is difficult at the best of times. particulalry with soem of the exotics. The only sure way I believe is by microscopic examination of the cell structure, together with the general appearance. There are books which give known examples of both methods.


I'm pretty sure that to get the shots you want for identification you'll need to pay someone to plane and finish the known samples in the same way and then photograph them.
