What is European Oak best for?

European oak is often more characterful than the American Oak and this can be used to great effect

when bringing warmth and personality to interior joinery. European is also a lot more durable and

resistant to moisture as it is grown in a harsher, wetter climate. European Oak can be used outdoors.

Cut to Size / Planed all Round European Oak Timber 

European Oak, or French Oak, is grown across the whole country, but we predominantly source timber from the Burgundy and Dole regions. That's because this area of France is close to the Swiss border and the trees here tend to grow more slowly due to the relatively harsh conditions. This gives the timber a consistent golden-brown colour so you'll tend to have less variation within your order. 

Ordering European Oak Timber 

Ordering Oak planed all round timber will see you utilising a practical piece of wood that machines well, is good for nailing, screwing, staining, and polishing. You will notice only a small amount of movement in performance.
