Everwood specializes in sourcing unique exotic hardwoods that you can not find anywhere else. Each type of wood we use has a rare and particular grain to it that truly makes a statement in each piece crafted. We are proud to source all of our wood from ethical, sustainable sources, in accordance with FSC and WWF-supported practices.

Medieval Walnut is a very stable exotic hardwood rich with black mineral content. Our boards are cut to an average width of 10 inches, but some come as wide as 30 inches. The mineral deposit content varies from mild to wild for each board, therefore each piece has a unique beauty to it unlike any other. An interesting feature of Medieval Walnut is that it rarely comes with any knots in it. So if you're looking for something that is full of character, Medieval Walnut is the way to go.

Coco Wood is an exotic hardwood rich in grain variation in many tones of brown, which makes this unique wood diverse ranging in colours from a light cream to soft black. These boards are cut in wide widths from 7 inches up to 20 inches. Coco wood has a definitive grain that varies from tame to wild depending on your preference, which truly makes a statement in each piece created. This wood is for those looking to show off a rich grain that surely will pop into your home.

Bi Ipe is truly a one-of-a-kind hardwood with its half Sapwood running throughout. Ipe (pronounced EE-pay) is world-renowned for its superior characteristics and properties. Ipe is one of the hardest woods in the world which lends to its incredible durability and longevity. It is also naturally resistant to insect attack, mould, rot, fire, and decay. The colour of Ipe heartwood is a rich brown with red and amber hues and varies considerably from board to board. This "two-tone" wood is great for projects like stairs, interior doors, or decking. If rare beauty is what you're going for then this exceptional wood is what you need for your next custom project.

Tiger Wood is new to Everwood, Tigerwood. This is a highly durable and dramatic exotic hardwood, known for its dark vein stripes and stunning deep red-toned background. The grain of Tigerwood is as wild as its coloration. From grain that runs straight and true to wild turns and twists.
