Oak Red Wood Veneer Information
What can any one say about red oak that pretty much all wood workers do not already know? You may not, know, that it is actually pretty popular throughout Europe and is still very popular and plentiful in North America. We do stock plain sliced and quarter cut red oak despite the fact that we do not get a lot of requests for it these days. One thing about red oak is that the log dimensions are still very good and it is a relativly easy wood to work with plus it takes stain and finish very well. Keep in mind that it is not unusual for red Oak veneer to have grain separation which means there is a good chance you will need to get out the paper tape and do some patching. Oak woods in general do display barber poling when book matched as plain sliced or quarter/rift.
