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 steam-bending. Acidic, so galvanised or non ferrous fittings should be used.  French Oak is super popular in South Africa for flooring and furniture.


Sustainability: Not listed in the CITES Appendices or on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Common uses: Furniture, flooring, countertops.

Comments: Softer to machine than American oak, this is a superb timber for flooring, cladding, furniture etc.  It is the timber of choice for wine cellars and tasting rooms.
