Red Oak Wood

Overview Of Red Oak Wood

The sapwood of Red Oak is white to light brown and the heartwood is often a pinkish reddish brown. The wood is similar in general appearance to White Oak, but with a slightly less pronounced figure due to the smaller rays and a more porous end grain structure. The wood is mostly straight-grained with a coarse texture.

Working Properties Of Red Oak Wood

Red oak machines well; nailing and screwing is good although pre-boring is recommended, and it can be stained and polished to a very good finish. It performs best when dried slowly, reducing the opportunity for degrading such as splits and warp. It has high shrinkage and can be susceptible to movement in performance under variable moisture conditions.
