Quercus robur (Europe)
European Oak is a light brown to biscuit colour with a distinct silver grain on quarter-sawn surfaces. Oak has well established uses for furniture, doors, windows, floors and all prestigious joinery. It finishes well and is strong, hard-wearing and reasonably stable.
European Oak is also available in larger sections for rustic beams and, when fresh sawn (Green) for high quality fencing and bollards. With all Oak, precautions are necessary to prevent contact with iron and steel which react with tannin in the wood causing a black stain.
