ENCYCLOPEDIA OF WOOD

ELM, WHITE

(H)

Botanical Name: Ulmus americana White elm is the largest and arguably the most stately elm of all. More so than other elms, this majestic tree was devastated by Dutch elm disease and today it is relatively difficult to find white elm lumber. The wood is extremely easy to bend and is most often used to make furniture. When sliced on the quarter, white elm pro­duces lovely ribbon-striped veneers.

Other Names: American elm, water elm, swamp elm (U. S.A.); orhamwood, gray elm (Canada).

Sources: Canada and U. S.A.

Characteristics: Usually straight grain, though often interlocked; coarse texture; light, yellowish-brown color. Uses: Furniture, boat building, sports equipment and decorative veneers.

Workability: Generally good; dulls cutting edges moder­ately; good bending properties, but prone to warping. Finishing: Accepts finishes well.

Weight: 35 Ib./cu. ft.

Price: Inexpensive, but increasing due to scarcity.
