Hackberry (Celtis occidentalis, Celtis laevigata) is a common US hardwood, found throughout most of the eastern US and Canada. Not a commonly supplied wood commercially, it is used frequently where it is locally harvested for either utility lumber, or fine hand-crafted items.


Fairly tight grained, it works well with sharp tools, and finishes/stains well. Interesting grain characteristics and color variations help it maintain interesting visuals in your finished product.


Nominal dimensions 5"x.75"x.75"
