White oak has a light brown heartwood and slightly paler sapwood. It is strong, tough, heavy, fine-grained, durable and beautiful.
We produce White Oak lumber in standard thicknesses of 4/4, 5/4, 6/4 and 8/4. Packages are sorted according to National Hardwood Lumber Association rules as F&B or FAS&FAS1F (Face and better) grade, #1 common grade, and #2 common grade. Narrow selects and short selects often are available in 4/4 and 5/4. Green lumber spoils easily in warm weather, and shrinks considerably in kiln drying, which causes splits and deformities, so proper quality controls are essential throughout the lumber manufacturing process.
