Heartwood is pale yellow-brown. It has a very durable, straight grain with a coarse texture. Product from the northern US is most desirable, as it is slower growing. As a result, it has a finer grain.
Machinability: Machines well; particularly the slower growing woods. White oak needs to be pre-drilled before screwing. Stains and polishes very well.
