Which is the Hardest Hardwood?
Janka Hardness Test
Hardness is rated in the amount of pounds-force that needs to be exerted to drive a steel ball of about half an inch into the material. This is the Janka Hardness test. The hardest woods have pounds-force above 5000! Hardness and density are the essential elements of hardwood while color and availability are the other elements that decide its price.
