Red Oak is a common tree in many parts of the Eastern United States. The wood from this tree is very common in flooring, interior trim, and in furniture. It is very hard, dense, and wears well. The natural color of the wood ranges from light reddish-brown to a golden straw-yellow color. In addition to this natural color, we offer several darker stains. Red oak has an easily recognizable pattern of concentric arches, cathedrals, and misshapen ovals. If you run your fingernail across the grain of oak, you can feel what you see. This is called open-grained. The overall rustic appearance of red oak makes it an excellent choice for informal settings, children's furniture, or any piece that must stand-up to serious use.
