Whether you're working on furniture, cabinets or anyother project you can dream up, Estate Millwork has the lumber you need. Our premium dimensional lumber is FAS grade hardwood lumber that is kiln dried to 8% moisture content, and machine sanded with 150 grit. Each board is cut to size when ordered, widths range from 1-inches to 12-inches and lengths up to 120-inches.
Red Oak, like most of the North American Oaks, is very hearty and grows quite large, it is a very dense hardwood with a medium, open-pored texture. It has a prominent grain stripe that is straight and can be coarser than White Oak when surfaced. Red Oak is a strong species that bends rather well due to its open grain structure, but it can dull cutting edges rapidly, so sharp tools are a necessity to prevent splintering.
It should be noted that due to its high level of tannins, Red Oak will corrode steel fasteners; this can then cause staining of the wood over time. Because of open pores and grain, Red Oak will finish well, but a uniform surface can sometimes be hard to obtain without a pore filler.
