Exceedingly strong, heavy and durable
Oak is considered one of the finest and sturdiest materials to work with in woodworking.
It is extremely strong, dense, durable, long-lasting wood, highly resistant to wear and tear, and ideal for liming. Oakwood naturally contains a high proportion of tannin which makes it highly resistant to attack by insects or fungi.
Properties & Uses
As a hardwood, oak has a high level of water resistance as its dense, non – porous texture resists water absorption,
making it ideal for exterior uses without the need for waterproof chemicals being applied.
Oak is commonly used for furniture, joinery, flooring, panelling, decking and veneers.”
