Native Oak

Description: heartwood is light tan-biscuit coloured and is usually straight grained but cross grained material can occur depending on growth conditions. Oak is a tough and hard material. It also has a very good steam bending classification but is liable to stain blue if in contact with iron compounds. It is a very durable wood. The acidic nature of oak will affect metal in direct contact and cause corrosion, therefore non-ferrous or galvanised metals should be used.
 
Origin: Europe, Asia, North America
 
Uses: Furniture/cabinet making, boat building, dock and harbour work, sea defences, high class joinery, coffins, carvings, decking and for all purposes of exposure in contact with the ground.
