Oak White (Flat Sawn) Hardwood Sample (1/2"x3"x6")

A robust, strong and good looking choice for furniture for sure. White oak has a consistent, creamy light tan color that's not quite found in any other wood. Stains very well, too, if you prefer. White oak is also one of the best domestic hardwoods for exterior/outdoor projects because it resists rot and decay so well.
 
Get your hands on a wood you've never tried before! It's simple. Samples are milled on all sides to the standard size of 1/2'' X 3'' X 6'', as determined by The International Wood Collectors Society, and include the shipping cost within the 48 U.S. Each one is labeled with the botanical and common names. Use these to test finishes and stains, to compare color and grain characteristics, etc.
