American Red Oak Veneered Panels & Jointed Veneer
American Red Oak is a group of species that are sourced from the Eastern United States.
The sapwood of American Red Oak is nearly white to greyish or pale reddish brown and 2-5cm wide, while the heartwood is pinkish to light reddish brown or light brown. American Red Oak veneer grain and colour variation is dependent upon the origin of the wood and the growing season in that locality and the texture depends upon the rate of growth of the tree, with more northern climes resulting in a less coarse textured material.
Red oak lumber can be separated from white oak by the size and arrangement of pores in latewood and because it generally lacks tyloses in the pores, which makes the wood less impermeable by liquids.
