Finishing of Oak

Oak   has   very   unique   properties   that   significantly   affect   the   final   finishing   appearance.      Oak   has   a   very distinct   and   bold   grain   structure   that   is   dominant   after   any   stain   is   applied.      Keep   in   mind   that   this   bold grain   structure   will   be   emphasized   when   your   product   is   stained,   and   more   so   as   the   stain   color   gets deeper.  We have been asked to paint oak, which we have, and can do.  However, the deep oak grain lines remain   and   in   some   cases   are   amplified   by   the   paint.      The   paint   does   not   “fill   in”   the   grain,   but   flows   into the grain lines resulting in the grain showing through after painting.  Native Regions There   are   literally   hundreds   of   oak   species   that   grow   through   the   world.   Nearly   a   hundred   of   those species   grow   in   North   America.   Red   oak   grows   in   the   Eastern   Regions   of   the   United   States   and   Canada. Primarily    they    are    found    growing    east    of    the    Great    Plains    States    to    the    Atlantic    coast    and    from Southeastern   Canada   to   Texas.   It   is   the   most   abundant,   and   most   commercially   used   oak   species.   Red oak   is   a   fairly   slow   growing   tree   that   grows   best   in   temperate   climates.   The   most   ideal   conditions   are moist   and   well   drained   landscapes,   where   the   soil   ranges   from   is   sandy   to   fertile   loam.   Red   oak   thrives best at elevations between 2000 to 3000 feet, but can be found in elevations over 5000 feet.   Characteristics Red    Oak    is    a    coarse    textured,    primarily    straight    grained    wood    with    large    pores,    although    some interlocking   grain   patterns   can   occur.   It   weighs   on   the   average   of   46   lbs/cu.   ft.,   and   its   color   ranges   from a   light   to   medium-tan,   with   slight   pinkish-   brown   grain   patterns   throughout.   It   is   considered   a   tough, heavy,   strong,   and   stiff   hardwood.   Also,   red   oak   is   very   dense,   and   has   a   high   shock   resistance   rating.   It is not a very durable wood, so indoor use is necessary. Properties  Red   oak   is   ranked   above   average   for   machine   use,   but   is   not   recommended   for   hand   tools   due   to   its hardness.   Also,   red   oak   turns   well,   but   sharp   tools   should   be   used   for   best   results.   Carving   can   be   a challenge,   and   is   not   recommended.   Red   oak   holds   metal   fasteners   very   well,   but   pre-drilling   is   required. Oak   accepts   most   adhesives   well,   but   epoxy   glues   are   not   recommended.   Also,   when   using   PVA   glue,   do not   allow   metal   clamps   to   come   in   contact   with   the   glue,   because   they   will   turn   the   glue   dark   and discolor   the   wood.   It   is   always   recommended   to   clean   up   any   excess   glue   immediately   before   it   dries. Sanding   usually   does   not   pose   a   problem,   but   like   any   other   wood,   it   will   burn   if   not   careful   when   using   a power   sander.   It   is   recommended   to   use   wood   filler   prior   to   any   finish   work.   Oak   receives   stains   well, and   polishes   to   great   a   finish.   Because   of   its   warm   colors   and   beautiful   grain   patterns,   clear   finishes, without prior staining, tend to bring out its natural beauty. Main Uses Oak   has   many   uses,   some   of   these   include:   cabinets,   flooring,   millwork,   molding,   trim,   veneer,   paneling, and    plywood.    Also,    it    is    used    for    making    barrels,    caskets,    tool    handles,    wooden    ware,    and    various turnings.   Oak   furniture,   such   as   dressers,   night   stands,   beds,   file   cabinets,   and   desks   are   desirable.   Oak steam   bends   very   well   and   is   useful   for   manufacturing   chairs   and   other   furniture   where   bending   is required.
