European Oak is one of the most popular wood veneers, versatile and varied in use and appearance. It is also known as English Oak or Burr Oak. This hardwood is one of the dark european species, now also grows in Minor Asia and in the North of Africa.
This well known and loved species produces a myriad variety of different types of very useful veneer. Depending on the individual log and the way in which it is sliced, European Oak may be plain and straight grained with a minimal look, it may be highly figured with pronounced medullary rays, or crown-grained like many other types and even rustic looking with pips and burr clusters that can be spread over the full length of the log.
European Oak Crown Cut presents a fine cathedral and is frequently to be seen at the centre of the sheet. This with its coarse texture and its medium weight define this hardwood species.
The colour of the heartwood varies from light brown yellow to brown, and the sapwood is a little clearer and is clearly separated. Its fibre is straight and the grain is thick. Indeed, growth rings are visible and they are very marked.
European Oak Crown Cut veneer has nearly all common uses of hardwoods, and is especially popular where strength and durability are required, as architectural panels, lumber or furniture. Other common uses are interior woodwork (flooring, moldings) and joinery.
That is why European Oak Crown Cut provides infinite possibilities with the elegance of modern minimalism or may even highlight the more classic design.
It is a perfect way to include natural wood in your woodwork without leaving aside the trends of interior design. The result, a warm, quiet and serene atmosphere that is breathed in every space.
