EUROPEAN OAK – Quercus robur
European Oak (Quercus Robur) is native to Europe. It is a temperate wood that grows taller than the average American oak species and is often used for specialty longer length planks. Both species are know as ‘White’ Oaks and are durable and strong, with a longstanding reputation of longevity.
Physical & Mechanical Properties :
The wood have grain / texture straight grain, with a rough, uneven texture. May have irregular or interlocking grains depending on the condition of tree growth. European Oak has high strength properties. Medium bending and crushing strength. Low stiffness and shock resistance. Good overall strength makes it increasingly used by architects and designers in structural applications.
Produces good results with hand and machine tools. Can react with iron (particularly when wet) and cause staining and discoloration. Responds well to steam-bending. Glues, stains, and finishes well.
European Oak has been rated as having very good resistance to decay, and is commonly used in boatbuilding applications.
