ORIGIN

North America

INFO

American Oak is a hard, heavy wood, and has low stiffness and good overall strength, making it increasingly popular as a structural timber. It also has very good steam bending properties. White oak machines well and is easy to glue, nail and screw. It readily accepts stains and polishes to a good finish.

APPEARANCE

Very similar in appearance and colour to the European Oak, American Oak has light-coloured sapwood and a light to dark brown heartwood. It is mostly straight grained with a medium to coarse texture. It has large distinctive growth rings, and some medullary rays may be present.
