In this contribution, the results of the wear resistance study of 10 sorts of wood (apple, aspen, beech, hornbeam, horse-chestnut, London plane, mahogany, silver fir, sour cherry and sweet cherry) are published. The laboratory tests were carried out using the pin-on-disk machine when the abrasive clothes of three different grits (240, 120 and 60) were used. The wear intensity was assessed by the volume, weight and length losses of the tested samples. From the results of the carried out tests it follows that the wear resistance of different woods is different. It was proved that the wear resistance of different woods depends on the abrasive particles size, too. Also the technical-economical evaluation was part of the carried out tests. It was univocally proved that at the intensive abrasive wear using the abrasive cloth the best results were shown by hard woods, e.g. apple, beech or mahogany. Soft woods, e.g. horse-chestnut, silver fir or sweet cherry, are cheap, but their wear is bigger compared to hard woods.
