It also called English Oak, is primarily sourced from Europe. It grows in many parts of Europe and also in some parts of North Africa and Asia. Oak hails from the Quercus genus, which produces more than two hundred species of oak. Quercus robur is the scientific name given to European Oak wood. Oak trees are about 24-35 m tall and have a 1-1.5 m trunk diameter. The average dried weight is 675 kg/m3 and it has a Janka rating of 1,120 lbf (4,980 N), which indicates that the wood is both strong and hard. It is considered a durable wood and particularly preferred for boatbuilding due to its outstanding resistance to decay.

Appearance & Characteristics

It has a light or medium brown coloured heartwood, while the sapwood is almost white to light brown and not always distinguishable from the heartwood. The presence of an olive cast in the heartwood is common. Ray fleck patterns can be observed in a quarterly sawn oak piece. The wood grain is particularly straight and the texture is coarse and uneven. Interlocked grain in some oak species is also not uncommon. It is considered durable and has good resistance to decay, which makes it suitable for marine applications such as boatbuilding. Oak dries slowly and may be prone to split and check. Forced drying might lead to honeycombing.

Uses of European Oak Wood

English Oak is easy to work with both hand and machine tools. It can sometimes cause staining or lose colour while in contact with iron, though it stains, glues, bends (steam-bending), and finishes well. Oak wood is widely grown and easily available throughout Europe, though it’s not as common in the US and other parts of the world. The price is rather low for locally-grown timber, but imported wood can be moderately priced. Because of its high durability and decay resistance, Oak is suitable for both marine and exterior applications, such as flooring, barrels and boatbuilding. It is also extensively used for furniture making, veneers, cabinetry, and interior trim, among other things.
