The Appalachian White Oak used by MAR-K is primarily harvested from Eastern Kentucky. White Oak has a white to light tan sapwood with a tan to brown colored heartwood. One of the interesting features of White Oak is that its pores contain a substance called tyloses, which prevents water from seeping through the wood. Another factor, which differentiates White Oak from Red Oak is the high amount of tannic acid contained in White Oak. The tannic acid in White Oak protects the wood from fungi and insects. White Oak machines well and finishes well. Grooved, sanded, cut-to-size and ready-to-finish. Our show quality Appalachian White Oak wood is sanded to a thickness of 3/4". Made in Oklahoma City, USA.
