Character / Color:

Over the years many cultural groups have considered the oak a sacred tree and have valued it for its size, hardness and longevity. The American white oak has a darker and denser wood than the red oak, a medium coarse texture and an often irregular or cross-grain. On the longitudinal plane, pretty figures or stripes give the light yellow to medium and dark brown wood a decorative note. The large and wide wood rays underscore this decorative character with their vivid grain or spindles.
