Oak is one of the most widely used hardwoods due to its strength, prominent grain and ability to be finished. Its light colour provides a prefect platform for staining or oiling to a wide variety of colours. American Oak is lighter with a more even pale to light brown colour, whilst European Oak tends to have a more close knit grain, and darker heartwood.
