Rustic Red Oak

History and Characteristics of Rustic Red Oak

Possibly the most sought after hardwood in the United States, a ubiquitous site in many homes. This wood is hard, strong and often priced well due to its availability. The Heartwood is light to medium brown with a reddish tint. The sapwood ranges in color from nearly white to light brown and is sometimes not easy to distinguish from heartwood. Like most oaks, Red Oaks are available in both quartersawn (where wood grain is emphasized) and flatsawn cuts. After drying Red Oak properly, it is known to be one of the most stable wood types holding its shape at large cuts or dimensions.

 


Specifications

  • New Rustic solid wood flooring is normally milled to 3/4″ thickness .
  • Vintage Lumber is also able to meet customer’s requirements for both thinner (minimum 3/8”) and thicker solid flooring.
  • Most of our solid flooring is produced in random widths(RW) from 2” to 10”, on the full inch face. Typical RW ranges are 3” to 6”(3,4,5,6), 3” to 8”, 7” to 10”, or any combination needed. Board widths of over 20” are sometimes available in certain species. The wider the widths required, the higher the costs. Our RW flooring is usually not sold as a repeating pattern(equal lineal feet of each width). For prompt filling of orders, we base our RW counts on available widths in inventory, and we calculate a 9 or 10 board width sequence to facilitate installation to avoid all of one width remaining at the end.
