Red oak is one of the fastest growing native oaks, and is one of the most popular domestic woods in use today. Generally Red Oak has a light reddish brown color and is more coarse-grained than White Oak. Red Oak glues readily and stains well, but does not have the durability and rot-resistance of White Oak. Its moderate price and overall strength and hardness make it an exceptional value for flooring, cabinet and furniture making. Its weight per cubic foot is 45 lbs.
Because this is a natural material, the color and pattern will vary slightly from piece to piece. Please see the thickness tolerance below and note that thickness will change based on conditions like humidity.
Thinner boards take more time and labor to produce; therefore, while the 1/16" pieces are thinner, they are the same price as the 1/8" pieces.
