EUROPEAN OAK

Oak represents our leading species, with which we produce our entire products range.

Oak wood is characterized by a very good hardness and mechanical resistance, in particular to compression and bending, but also resistance to fungus and mold attacks. It presents a pleasant colours stratification, from the yellowish sapwood to the brown heartwood and is characterized by the medullary rays (the silver figures) which are the true characteristic of this wood. Over time it tends to lighten slightly.
