White Oak – Rift & Quartered

White Oak – Rift & Quartered

Attributes The time-honored milling method of rift & quartered wood is what makes this flooring option so special. The planks are cut at precise angles to the growth rings, resulting in a more structurally sound product and uniquely beautiful hardwood. White Oak features sapwood which is white to cream in color; its heartwood is light brown and may even have a pink or slight gray hue. The grain of White Oak is open with longer rays than Red Oak. There is noticeable variance among boards in color and grain texture, but not nearly as heightened as it is in Red Oak. White Oak is the most popular wood for flooring. It is resistant to fungi and insects and has high shock resistance and great wear.
