American White Oak

This en vogue light coloured hardwood is very popular for internal joinery work. Sourced from North American mills, the timber is kiln-dried to a low moisture content (8-10%) and is therefore only recommended for interior cladding unless conditioned to a suitable moisture content prior to installation. White Oak is available with FSC certification and is available pre machined planed tongue and groove with a V profile (PTGV) for immediate delivery nationwide. Available Grades:- Grade Overview - Prime grade and Natural/Character grade Grade Character - Prime grade occasional small knot on face, no sap, splits or shakes. Natural/Character grade allows knots (filled and sanded).
