General Description

European oak is found from the Caucuses to Norway and has been recorded to reach the age of 1500 years old. European oak is in high demand for interiors, flooring and furniture work.

Our European oak boules are light in color like a biscuit, usually straight grained, but irregular or cross-grained material can occur depending on growth conditions. They dry relatively slowly with a tendency to check, split and honeycombing. This is why it needs careful handling for air drying and kilning.

A boule is according to “Making the Grade” is:

“A stack of timber formed from a log that is sawn longitudinally by a series of successive parallel cuts with the resultant waney-edged pieces then assembled to re-create the original form of the log.”

Our oak boules are suitable for furniture manufacturing, cabinet making, joinery, parquet strips, and tabletop manufacturing.
