About Red Oak Lumber:
The wood is similar in general appearance to white oak, but with a slightly less-pronounced figure due to the smaller rays. The wood is mostly straight-grained, with a coarse texture. It machines well. Pre-boring is recommended for nailing and screwing. It can be stained to a golden finish, with a wide range of finish tones. Red oak is hard and heavy, with medium-bending strength and stiffness and high-crushing strength.
Red Oak lumber is mainly used in furniture, flooring, architectural millwork and moulding, doors, kitchen cabinets, paneling, and caskets.
