European Oak

The classic timber of the ages is medium to dark brown in colour with distinct rays on the quarter sawn face. Most of our stock is of Croatian origin and kilned in Italy and is either FSC or PEFC certified. The stock we keep is A grade which means in principle it is 4 sides free of defect. We also keep a B Grade which is similar to an American FASIF grade.  The kilning is a lot more sympathetic than that of the Americans thus reducing the distortion associated with oak.
