)-- Homeowners, designers and builders have a valuable new resource when researching wood corbels and other carved wood products: the InvitingHome.com Wood Selection Guide
Wood corbels are well-loved for their ability to add both beauty and functionality to kitchens and other rooms throughout the home. For some people, though, the great variety of corbels makes for a difficult purchasing decision.
The InvitingHome.com Wood Selection Guide for Corbels and Wood Carvings provides a useful solution for the overwhelmed buyer. This comprehensive online resource features overviews of seven hardwood species often used in crafting corbels: alder, beech, cherry, hard maple, oak (red and white), poplar and white hardwood.
Visitors to InvitingHome.com can learn about the strong points of each wood species with regard to its use in corbels. Some of the wood types, such as cherry, are traditional favorites for corbels and other wood carvings. Others, such as poplar, have gained in popularity more recently. Photographs of each wood species allow users to envision how the corbel would fit in with the rest of the room.
