White Oak

Species: White Oak

Common Names/Species: American white oak (U.K.)

Scientific Name: Quercus alba

Description: White oak is mostly straight-grained with a medium to coarse texture, with longer rays than red oak. White oak therefore has more figure. 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.

Common uses: Architectural Millwork, Furniture, cabinets, flooring, boat building
