White Oak has been a favorite among wood workers for centuries. Its workability is good and the wood glues and finishes well. Because of its light even color it is a safe and reliable selection when decorating and remains classic over the years. When sawn flat the grain reveals large growth rings and figure. When quarter and rift sawn the grain reveals ray and fleck patterns that are more consistent in appearance. White Oak has a distinguishable sent that most find appealing. Large trees are still widely available and the tree is not considered threatened.
