Expect a fairly consistent dark brown color with lots of texture and variation to the grain. Standardly available unfinished for wall and ceiling cladding (not appropriate for flooring). HEMLOCK is one of the harder of the softwoods with a Janka rating of 500. REED is rich in both color and character marks include mineral staining, color changes, weathering, checking, nail holes, and knots. Face nailing recommended.
