White Oak

Sturdy, beautiful & chosen by the colonists...
White oak is also heavy, hard, tough and fine textured. It is superior in hardness and features a very consistent and well-defined grain pattern. In a study of pre-revolutionary homes in Connecticut, it was discovered that out of all of the first level floors in these beautiful old homes, only one was not made from white oak. White oak offers a more neutral light to nutty brown color when compared to red oak and, overall, it is somewhat darker. It is very popular with TimberKnee customers in restoration projects for older homes, and is fabulous in contemporary settings.

General Description
The sapwood is light-colored and the heartwood is light to dark brown. White oak is mostly straight-grained with a medium to coarse texture, with longer rays than red oak. White oak therefore has more figure.

Working Properties
White oak machines well, nails and screws well although pre-boring is advised. Since it reacts with iron, galvanized nails are recommended. Its adhesive properties are variable, but it stains to a good finish. Can be stained with a wide range of finish tones. The wood dries slowly.

Physical Properties
A hard and heavy wood with medium bending and crushing strength, low in stiffness, but very good in steam bending. Great wear-resistance.
