European White Oak

Description

EUROPEAN WHITE OAK (Quercus robur) is native to most of Europe including areas like France, Germany, Finland, Ukraine and Romania. Quercus is the Latin family name for all oaks robur means robust and refers to the strength of this species of wood.

European White Oak generally has a tighter grain, smaller growth rings, and more uniform color than American White Oak (Quercus alba). It ranges in color from light brown to a rich, dark brown. Perhaps most commonly, it’s a warm honey color.

It responds particularly well to different finishing techniques, including fuming. Fuming is the process of exposing wood to ammonia gas in a sealed chamber. This process requires a wood, like European White Oak, that is high in tannins. Fumed European White Oak develops a rich, deep color similar to walnut.
