Characteristics of some types of wood

Solid wood furniture is quite expensive. It is easy for a layman to confuse a chipboard with an array. In order not to be mistaken, it is best to look at the wooden details on the cut. If this is not possible, then you need to pay attention to the drawing of the tree: it is easy to find identical patterns on pressed plates, but a natural tree never repeats its lines.

You can relate to this as you like, but many centuries have been talking about the energy of trees and wooden furniture and their impact on humans. Three main types of trees are known by the type of their impact on humans:
– Trees – “vampires” – when contact reduces a person’s energy, aspen, poplar, chestnut, willow, spruce, bird cherry.
– Trees – “donors” – improve energy, give strength to oak, acacia, birch, maple, mountain ash.
– “Neutral” – everyone else.
It is believed that furniture made of trees, “vampires” categorically can not be kept at home. On the one hand, such furniture draws negative energy, sores, etc., but with it, if it is next to such a tree for more than a certain time, it begins to take away good energy and can even lead to illnesses. The strongest tree in energy extraction is aspen.
