    Hi, can you finish your question.

  • what are you trying to type and measure?

    If you go to this site (which I have pasted below), scroll down to the second to last paragraph. There you will find a list of many different types of wood and it includes a description of the coloring and characteristics for each of them. Hope this can help! :)

    Then, this site is even better as it seems to has EVERY kind of wood -listed alphabetically- along with little photos of each one so you can actually see the coloring and details versus only having a written description about them. Then, you can click on any one of them to learn anything and everything you ever wanted to know about it. (and then some!) And... on the bottom of the first page, you can narrow down the criteria for your search by selecting things like: color, hard or soft woods, the places they are found in, etc. so that you’re not just endlessly scrolling through every wood type that’s ever been known to man. :)
