American Oak is also known as American Red Oak – but it’s not red! The name, red oak, comes from the colour of the leaves in autumn. The sapwood is white to light brown and the heartwood is a pinkish reddish brown. The wood appears similar to white oak, but with slightly less pronounced figure. The wood is mostly straight grained, with a coarse texture. Also known as Northern Red Oak, Southern Red Oak. American Oak is great for shelving due to its durability, stability, and attractive appearance. Its robust nature ensures that shelves made from this wood can withstand the weight of various items.
