Description


American Oak is an attractive, pale timber with a straight grain and pronounced growth rings. It takes a variety of stains and polishes to a high standard finish, which adds to its versatility. It is highly-prized for its hardness and glues and screws very well. It is often used in high value panelling. American Oak flooring exhibits a modern, clean look and perfectly complements contemporary home design. It is also a favourite among architects and designers for modern commercial fit-outs.
