Red Oak

Red Oak is native to the Southern United States and Southeast Canada, with it’s range overlapping that of the White Oak. Both are commonly found growing side-by-side in the forest. Red Oak lumber is traditionally light to medium tan or brown, often with a reddish cast. Differing from White Oak in that Red Oak is not recommended for outdoor use or shipbuilding as it will absorb water. Used extensively for all interior projects including cabinetry, trimwork, furniture, flooring and veneers. Takes paint and stains very well, Red Oak is possibly the most common hardwood in the United States.
