Oak – French

Category: Tag:

Species Description: Wood Species

It is very similar to other Oak species, but generally imported in a rustic form and hence with a bit more character (knots).  A hard, durable timber very suitable for steambending. Acidic, so galvanised or non ferrous fittings should be used.  French Oak is super popular in South Africa for flooring and furniture.
