A beautiful warm brown coloured wood, highly gained and with a distinctive "partridge-breast" figure. Today it is most frequently used for furniture and is especially popular for its attractive and pleasing natural or waney edge. Elm also has some unique qualities that make it ideally suited for use in a variety of specialist circumstances.
Unsplitable - Another unusual quality of elm is its "unsplittability" caused by a stepped pattern of its wood fibres. This makes it ideal for chair seats (when the legs are driven in most other woods would split) and projects that require end-grain nail holding capacity such as the transoms for clinker-built boats. This useful property led to the traditional use of elm in wheel hubs and sledgehammers.
