Victorian Ash, American White Oak


It is mostly straight grained with a medium to coarse texture, and with less figure than White Oak. It has distinctive growth rings.


American Red Oak is a hard and heavy wood, with low stiffness and medium crushing and bending strength. It also has extremely good steam bending properties. American Red Oak is easy to machine, nail, glue and screw. It stains easily and can take a wide variety of colours. It is a slow-drying wood, so care needs to be taken to avoid checking. Also, given its high shrinkage rate, under variable moisture conditions it is susceptible to some movement.
