American Red Oak


Pale brown with a pink tinge, very hard to tell the difference between Red and White Oak. The growth rings are a little further apart which gives a more pronounced grain. The wood is hard and heavy, with medium bending strength and stiffness and high crushing strength. Red oak can vary in color, texture, characteristics and properties according to the growing region. The American Red Oak that we offer at Timspec is especially good for flooring, decking and furniture.

Red Oak machines well; nailing and screwing is good although pre-boring is recommended, and it can be stained and polished to a very good finish.

This attractive looking oak, that is widely available, is increasingly being chosen by designers and architects for furniture, joinery, and flooring in export markets around the world.
