This species features neutral colored heartwood that varies from light beige to light brown. The sapwood can be paler or greyer. The grain pattern in White Oak is quite distinct due to the difference between the appearance of the open and closed grain. Classic oak patterning, including cathedral peaks, will be predominant in the Excel grade while vertical linear grain will rule the R&Q Excel grade. Classic grain will be predominant in Live Sawn Character grade, and vertical grain will also be accepted.
Grade prized for its natural color variation and heavy character. Every floor done in this grade will have a unique appearance owing to the distinct nature of the tree from which the lumber was sawn. Classic grain will be predominant and vertical grain is accepted. Unlimited mineral streaks, character marks, ray flecks, cracks and splits are permitted. Sound, patched or open knots are also permitted of any diameter and frequency.
