One of the most visually pleasing timbers, Oak is characterised by its light natural colour that features yellow rays and flecks. It has a prominent grain, and gains rustic appeal as it ages. It looks best with a clear oil or finish that shows off its natural beauty.
Oak is strong and solid. It has a smooth, rich texture. You can feel the hardness of the wood, which is less prone to chips and scratches than other timbers. The open pore structure looks great with a range of surface treatments.
“Oak has a beautiful appearance, which is why we’ve made it a key feature in several of our pieces. It’s a strong timber that ages well, unlike cheaper alternatives.”
Excessive heat or sunlight with make Oak fade or become brittle. Avoid soaking it in water. Like anything, a regular dust and wipe down will keep it looking fresh. Overall, it’s a hardy timber that will develop character with age.
