American White Oak
Also known as Northern White Oak, Southern White Oak.
American white oak is a hardwood common throughout the eastern United States. Similar in colour and appearance to European oak, American white oak has light-coloured sapwood and a light to dark brown heartwood. White oak is mostly a straight grain with a medium to coarse texture, with longer rays than red oak.
Also known as Mountain Ash, Alpine Ash.
Victorian ash is the trade name for two of the tallest hardwood species in the world. Victorian ash comprises three hardwood species: alpine ash, mountain ash and messmate and has quite a wide variation in colour mix Victorian Ash typically has a rather coarse texture, with a straight grain. The heartwood ranges from pale pink to yellowish brown.
Also known as Black Walnut, American Walnut.
American black walnut is imported from eastern regions of North America. Its heartwood ranges from a golden to rich chocolate brown colour. American black walnut is a fine and generally straight-grained timber, but sometimes it has an attractive wavy or curly grain.
Our own make
We use American Oak but coated in a black finish by Rubio Monocoat which is a plant-based hard wax oil.
Also known as Mountain ash, alpine ash, gum-topped stringybark, Australian oak
Tasmanian oak is a premium Australian hardwood timber encompassing three species that grow in the mountainous areas of Tasmania. Warm, dense and resilient, Tasmanian oak is the preferred hardwood for a wide range of applications. The timber is light in colour, varying from straw to reddish brown with intermediate shades of cream to pink. Unlike Victorian ash, Tasmania oak also includes messmate.
Please always keep in mind that timber, being a beautifully raw, natural working material may vary in tone, finish and grain detail. Depth of colour varies according to source and grain structure of the timber. We commit ourselves to find sustainably-grown timber.
