ERIC STROMER: Hey, I’m Eric Stromer. Here’s your GMC Trade Secret.
You know, I want to show you a little bit about choosing the right wood for the right project.
There are so many choices out there. Let me take you through a couple of examples.
For example, cedar – great for closet lining, also fencing outside, picnic tables. It’s nature’s natural insect repellant. It really lasts quite a long time; smells terrific in a closet system.
You’ve got your clear pine. This is great for trims. It’s great for making furniture or cabinetry. It’s very easy to work with. It’s a softer wood, so not recommended for hardwood flooring, but beautiful to look at, either painted or stained.
Coming down the line here, we’ve got redwood. Again, another great thing for redwood is outdoor redwood fencing, decks, picnic tables. It’s also nature’s natural insect repellent. You really don’t even need to put anything on it. It’ll last forever. It’s a great-looking wood.
Also, as we come down the line, oak – very hard wood, great for furniture, great for hardwood flooring. I love the oak because it’s so hard and difficult to break or bend or mar anytime it’s on the floor or with furniture. It lasts forever and ever.
That’s a couple of examples of all the different types of wood. Choose something you like from an artistic standpoint, from a practical standpoint. Whatever it takes, enjoy yourself. Go out and buy some wood.
