Oak

Old Oak (planed)

Old Oak (rough)

Ash

Oak (Quercus robur)

Oak is one of the most popular types of wood used to make tabletops. It is durable, beautiful, rot-resistant and easy to operate.

Oak wood is easily recognizable – characteristic pattern, color, knots, edges, smell. In addition, it is quite water resistant (this is due to the pores of the oak – they are completely covered with tylosis).

Heartwood is a light to medium brown, commonly with an olive cast, though there can be a fair amount of variation in color. Nearly white to light brown sapwood is not always sharply demarcated from the heartwood.

Oak wood may darken slightly over time, taking on more amber tones. This happens due to exposure to oxygen and UV light, making it a largely unavoidable process.

Grain is straight, with a coarse, uneven texture. May have irregular or interlocked grain depending on growing conditions of the tree.

Reclaimed Old Oak

Old oak is recycled wood that was part of a house or barn over a century ago.

Old oak table may have once been the walls of a train station or the home of the philanthropist after whom your street is named.

Tabletops could be planed or rough (saving weathered side of a log).

Reclaimed old oak is hardwearing and durable. With more than 100 years of age, it has passed the crash test by nature and time.

Another indisputable advantage of the material is environmental friendliness. After all, there is no need to use live trees for production. And, as it turned out, just few in Ukraine are able to properly process and use such material.

A barn oak table looks as unique as possible, as it has a special texture, a peculiar shade and specific cracks that are unique to it. Such tabletop definitely attracts attention. Therefore, it is most often used in the design of commercial premises and modern homes.

Ash (Fraxinus excelsior)

Ash is a light colored, smooth-grained hardwood. With its typical straight grain and beige-to-light-brown hue, ash wood is a very attractive option for tabletops. It’s one of the most durable varieties and has an extensive history in furniture making. It is durable, lightweight, aesthetically pleasing, and absorbs wood stains well.

It is also a very light/ medium brown color making it very attractive for use in tabletops. Ash is also favored as it glues stains and finished well all the attributes of a good hardwood for massive tabletops. It is also fairly strong and when stained can be a cheaper alternative to oak furniture that still gives that “oak” look (although they are quite close in price).

The heartwood is a light to medium brown color, though darker streaks can also be seen. Sapwood can be very wide, and tends to be a beige or light brown, not always clearly or sharply demarcated from heartwood.

Grain/texture has a medium to coarse texture similar to oak. The grain is almost always straight and regular, though sometimes curly or figured boards can be found.
