Reasons to choose White Oak
We use white oak because of its strength, density, and resilience. Its closed cellular structure is also ideal for use in interior finishes such as hardwood flooring, furniture, and even martial arts weapons.
If you want an aesthetically appealing floor, White Oak is a good option because of the appeal of its grain markings. There is a versatile color palette available. Contrary to its name, the wood is darker than red oak or maple. Its grey/brown undertone with a cooler hue separates it from red oak and maple and makes it more versatile and able to fit into different interior designs. White Oak also stains very well, complementing popular finishes like whitewash, grey, and darker tones. Since the wood has no red or pink undertone like cherry or red oak, nothing bleeds through.
While no wood is completely waterproof, White Oak offers slightly more moisture resistance compared to some other popular hardwood species. This makes it ideal for use in half-bathrooms and kitchens.
White Oak has a high tannin content, making it very resistant to fungal and insect attacks.
Since White Oak is available in different parts of the world and is not considered to be an exotic wood, it is more affordable compared to the more exotic wood species which are more difficult to find and ship.
