Red Oak is known for its strength and stability and has a prominent open grain. Oak ranges in color from white to yellow to reddish brown. Small pin knots and minor mineral streaking are present. Graining may vary from closely knit to a sweeping arch pattern.
Rustic Oak is hand selected to have more pronounced variations of its natural wood characteristics. You'll find greater color variation, more noticeable graining, and additional knots, mineral streaks, burls and pinholes.
