English Oak is a white oak- usually Quercous robur but sometimes Quercous petraea. The lumber has light heartwood similar to old growth American white oak.

*Burr Oak is English White Oak that has been "taken over" by burls (the burls give the wood a wonderful marbled appearance)
*Prized for fine furniture and veneers
*Most logs have extensive history and have been harvested from old estates in England or Scotland
*See also English Brown Oak for more information

Note: All pictures of boards that appear wet, have been wiped with denature alcohol to help show natural color. We use denature alcohol because it evaporates and does not effect the moisture content of the wood. Also, please keep in mind that the pictures below are only examples of the wood and not actual products available for sale.
