Grain

It is mostly straight grained with a medium to coarse texture. End grain structure is more porous than White Oak. Most crown cut but some quarter sawn and rift sawn boards.

Workability

Glacial Oak is a hard and heavy wood with moderate bending strength and stiffness. It has a high crushing strength and steam bends well. 

Glacial Oak works relatively easily, machines well and takes nails and screws, although pre-boring is recommended. As a result of Glacial Oak’s high shrinkage, it can be susceptible to movement under uneven moisture conditions. The timber can be stained and polished to an extremely attractive finish, which is one of the reasons it is becoming increasingly popular around the world.
