Description

Though often given a bum rap because of extensive use in tract house strip flooring, Red Oak is beautiful in its own right, especially in the wider widths. Although it's unusual to order Quartered or Rift Red Oak, it is available on special order.

As with all our products, this wood comes from managed forests. For more information on the sustainability of our wood, see the "green" wood page.

For pricing, see the price list (PDF).

Grades

Select Clear, predominantly the darker heartwood; occasional small stripe of sapwood
