American Red Oak Quarter Cut

Quercus Rubra L.

The sapwood varies in color from light grey to pale red, and the heartwood from rose to pale red or light brown. The heartwood is similar to that of other oaks, with a rose or tan color, but it has a reddish cast. The growth rings are visible. The wood rays are also visible and display the classical flecks of edge-grained oak, but less so than in white oak. The grain is straight. The texture of the grain is coarse (open), although it can vary according to growth and origin.
