Description

White Oak is strong, beautiful, rot-resistant, easy-to-work, and economical, representing an exceptional value to furniture companies.

Oak is one of the most popular woods used in furniture in the EU. Oak is highly durable, easy to work with, and looks great stained or with a clear, natural finish. Oak wood comes in a number of hues, but its grain pattern is quite unique, which makes it one of the easier species to recognize.

A piece of natural oak wood can take on virtually any hue; from light beige through brown and red. White oak tends to look more beige-to-brown. Oak show a significant color shift between the heartwood (innermost portion of the tree) and the sapwood (layer closest to the bark which transports the tree’s nutrients), the sapwood is usually a bit lighter, though this isn’t always the case.

Oak wood is generally straight-grained and has an uneven texture. However, there are other aspects of oak’s grain that makes it quite unique. For example, white oak’s water resistance lies in its pores. They’re totally sealed off by tyloses.

The care of an oak piece will depend largely on how it’s finished or what measures have been taken to seal the wood. It’s also best to avoid commercial polishes and cleaning solutions, as these can often damage the finish.
