White Oak is a mostly straight-grained hard and heavy wood. The heartwood is light to dark brown, and the sapwood is lightly colored. It has medium to coarse texture, with long rays. Quarter sawn White Oak has a more prominent figure than Red Oak. Rift sawn White boasts a distinct pinstripe. White Oak is especially popular where strength and durability are required and is one of North America’s leading hardwood species.
