Red Oak
WOOD TYPES: Red Oak  
   

Color: Heartwood is light pink to dark red and the sapwood is ranges from white to gray. Sometimes mineral streaks can be present.

Uses: Cabinets, furniture, moulding, and doors. Red Oak is a strong wood and is almost always stained or finished with a clear coat.

Workability: Mills/machines fairly well. Has a tendency to split when nailed or screwed close to the end of a board, so pre-drilling is recommended. Easy to glue and stain, but paints poorly due to the open grain structure. Also, a slight "cupping" of wide board is common.

Plywood: 1/8", ¼", ½", and ¾" thicknesses are regularly kept in stock.

Additional Info: Although rare, Red Oak can be defective after kiln drying. Many defects are caused by the kiln drying process, so be aware of this when picking out lumber.
