European Oak

European oak, also known as English oak or pedunculate oak (Quercus robur), is a popular wood species that is native to most of Europe and parts of Asia. It is a hardwood that is widely used in furniture making, flooring, construction, and decorative applications.

Color: The heartwood of European oak is light to medium brown, often with a grayish or olive cast. The sapwood is usually lighter in color and can be up to 4 inches wide.

Grain: European oak has a straight and coarse grain, which is often interlocked. The texture is medium to coarse, with a pronounced ray figure that gives the wood a distinctive look.

Density: European oak is a dense hardwood, with an average density of about 45 pounds per cubic foot (720 kg/m3). This density makes it durable and resistant to wear and tear.

Durability: European oak is highly resistant to decay, insect attack, and rot. It is also relatively stable and does not shrink or swell much with changes in moisture content.

Workability: European oak is moderately easy to work with, although its high density can make it challenging to cut and machine. It sands and finishes well, and takes stains and finishes evenly.

Uses: European oak is used for a wide range of applications, including flooring, cabinetry, furniture, veneer, and decorative items such as paneling and moldings. Its durability and resistance to decay also make it a popular choice for outdoor construction, such as decking and timber framing.

Overall, European oak is a versatile and attractive wood species that offers durability, stability, and a unique aesthetic appeal.
