WHITE OAK LUMBER – RIFT SAWN – 5/4" – SELECT & BETTER
Rough Cut – Random Widths – Random Lengths
The sapwood of White Oak is light in color and can range from a pale yellow-brown to a greyish-white. The heartwood may be either light brown in color or a darker brown with deep, golden tones. The distinctive coarse texture and straight grain has longer rays than Red Oak. Fast-growing Oaks, such as those grown in the South, produce wider, more prominent growth rings.
White Oak is heavy, hard, and very strong. It is worked easily, by machine or by hand, although slow-growing Oak is much easier to work than the faster growing varieties. While White Oak nails and screws well, pre-boring is advised for best results. To prevent the wood from reacting to iron, galvanized nails are recommended. Excellent results can be expected with staining, bleaching, or pickling.
