Craftsman Quartersawn White Oak
This light brown tone applied to real quartersawn white oak closely resembles Mission Style or Frank Lloyd Wright–type furniture. A perfect fit for the Craftsman style home.
This special quartersawn cut of the white oak tree is coveted for its incomparable beauty. It is commonly used in Craftsman style homes and furnishings. As compared to riftsawn and flatsawn cuts that are less spectacular, quartersawn has growth rings at angles of 45 to 90 degrees to the wide surface. White oak is grown mostly in the eastern United States and has color variations from creamy white to medium brown. It is a heavy (45.8 lbs/sq ft), strong and very hard wood with high shock resistance and a medium fine, uniform grain.
