White Oak is an outstanding domestic hardwood that is widely available and therefore quite affordable. It is a rather strong wood that displays a very straight and consistent grain making it quite versatile and easy to match when making wider panels, for building furniture and cabinets. The characteristic that has made White Oak wood famous is the presence of striking medullary rays that appear when the wood is quartersawn. In the early 1900s, White Oak was the standard species for the arts and crafts movement in furniture building, today it retains its popularity as a furniture wood, but its uses have expanded to include many more applications.
Its unique cellular structure makes the wood highly water resistant, and as a result it is used in great quantities for exterior applications ranging from trim and general construction to furniture and garden structures. White Oak is the perfect species for many applications, and the only drawback is the wood’s relatively unremarkable appearance which is easily overcome during the finishing process.
