Grown in the central region of Europe, European Oak grows slowly, produing a uniform colour and straight grain. Greyish-brown to yellowish-brown in colour, the character of European Oak is heavily influenced by the conditions it grows in.
Medium to coarse in texture, the working properties of European Oak can vary from fairly easy to moderately difficult depending on growth conditions.
Takes glue, nails and screws well, except near to edges, when the timber should be pre-bored. Open to a wide range of finishes (staining, waxing, polishing, smoking, fuming, liming), European Oak can be finished to an exceptionally high standard, drastically enhancing the true beauty of this wood.
Name: Quercus robur
Origin: Central Europe
Uses: Reproduction furniture, doors, high quality joinery, flooring
|Applications||Furniture, cabinet work, joinery, flooring, shopfitting, cladding, boat building|

First time customer Reviewed by Golfeet on 30 Apr 2018
Very pleased with the quality, both of the timber, and the expert preparation of it, my only comment is that the web-site suggested delivery in 1 to 5 days when in fact it took over two weeks. It did not affect the project, but maybe the information could have been more accurate

Timber materials - Our website calculates the weight and size of your order. If your order is over 3.6m long when wrapped we cannot ship it with our standard courier due to their limits on what their drivers can carry. If the weight is in excess of what the drivers can lift safely, again this will go onto a pallet. Sometimes, it is safer to ship your goods by pallet due to their size or shape or if your order is an extra wide timber.
Sheet materials – Some sheet material orders, due to their dimensions, can be cumbersome and heavy to handle, for the health and safety of the couriers and protection of the goods, we ship these by palletised delivery.
