Central Hardwoods maintains one of the largrest and most diverse hardwood inventories in the south west. We maintain stock of upper-grade hardwoods, selected according to their grain and color characteristics.

white oak


A premier hardwood, both in the U.S. and abroad. Widely used in architectural woodworking and furniture manufacture. Highly figured, even more textured than Red Oak and somewhat easier to work. Often, rift-sawn for a straight or "comb" grain effect, or quarter-sawn for a straight grain with highly prominent "flake.".


Heartwood varies from a light tan to a darker, yellowish-brown while the less prevalent sapwood is much lighter.
