Missouri Unfinished White Oak Select & Better


Reg: $ / sq.f

A truly beautiful wood used as flooring since the Middle Ages, White Oak is slightly harder than Red Oak. The wood can be tan, light brown, gray, or even slightly pink in colour. The sapwood can be white to cream in appearance. The grain is generally tighter than in Red Oak, but can have many delightful variations.

The Select & Better grade has minimal variation in tones of light pink to light brown in the same board and between boards. Large knots are absent, well-scattered, small sound knots up to 5 mm (3/16″) in diameter and tiny pin knots 3 mm (1/8″) in diameter are acceptable. Mineral streaks are minor and well-scattered, no longer than 50 mm. Checks and other imperfections from the manufacturing process are rejected. The Select & Better grade provides for an ideal base for natural to light finish coatings.


Specifications: Latin name – Quercus alba, relative hardness – 1360, thickness – 3/4″, widths available: 2 1/4″, 3 1/4″, 4″.
