White Oak (Quercus alba) is native to North America, and is the official state tree of Maryland. It is a dense, strong, stable wood. White oak is what is traditionally used in American Craftsman furniture, also in boatbuilding, and the finest whiskey and wine barrels. Kentucky State law specifies only new white oak barrels can be used to make Kentucky bourbon. White oak is a high-strength wood that is naturally decay- and insect-resistant, making it suitable for barn timbers and farm fencing.
Rift-sawn white oak is created by milling the planks at an angle that is perpendicular to the growth rings. This method of sawing highlights long straight grains in the wood.
