Description

White Oak is generally produced in the Eastern region of North America with a few exceptions in the Midwest. The most common grain pattern that is found in White Oak is what is known as plain sawn. Plain sawn White Oak mostly has a cathedral grain pattern with a varying amount of vertical or rift grain on the edges. Other grain patterns found in White Oak are rift sawn, quarter sawn or a combination of the two.  The heartwood is a pale/light to medium brown, while the sapwood ranges from a light cream to tan with the occasional gray stain.

White Oak is prominently used in furniture and cabinet shops, flooring applications and craft projects. It is also a very popular choice in cooperage shops where they make whiskey barrels.

If your interest in more of the details on how lumber is graded you read all about it in NHLA Rules Book.
