European Oak - Joinery Grade
Kiln Dried Oak
Joinery grade Oak is the same as prime grade Euro Oak in terms of performance and overall colour/look but can exhibit more knots, blemishes and character than prime grade. Joinery grade oak is sometimes referred to as; light character grade oak, second grade Oak, or semi-prime Oak. It is a more economical alternative to prime grade and can still be used effectively for windows, doors, stairs, mouldings and more. If you are looking for a more uniform, knot free, 'cleaner' look than the prime grade is a better choice.
Depending on origin, the heartwood of oak varies from light tan to a deep brown, with distinct bands of early wood and latewood. The grain is usually straight, but irregular or cross grain can occur adding to the beauty and appeal of this popular and timeless wood. The texture is coarse, and rays and growth rings show an attractive figure ('silver grain') when quarter sawn.
Most of our Oak is sourced from main land Europe and not from England. We can source English oak if required.
