Origin: White Oak is found in the Eastern United States.

Color: Live edge White Oak wood slabs have a creamy to light brown sapwood and a light to medium brown heartwood with a subtle red hue. The sapwood is usually very narrow and not clearly defined from the heartwood.

Janka Hardness: 1350 (hard). Hardness is comparible to Ash.

Durability: Rated as very durable.

Decay and Weather Resistance: White Oak lumber contains pores that are usually plugged with tylosesmaking the wood impervious to liquids. Because of this, it is frequently used in outdoor and boatbuilding applications.

Workability: White Oak is a very heavy wood. Seasoning must be done carefully to avoid major checking and warping. It is a good wood to use when steam-bending. It glues, stains, and finishes well.

Uses: Live edge White Oak wood slabs are a popular choice for table, bar, and counter tops. White Oak lumber is often used for flooring and furniture making. It is a great option for making barrels, kegs, and casks because of its non-porous heartwood. It has also been the leading wood for the construction of ships and boats.
