Primarily grown in the Eastern U.S. and Southern Canada, White Oak is a heavy, strong wood popular with builders for flooring, furniture, cabinetry, doors and millwork. We offer RWO in Millennia, and on the Vista door style for Katana. (“Rift” refers to the way the wood is milled–see below.)

White Oak is a very strong, dense hardwood that is resilient and dimensionally stable. The sapwood is light-colored, and the heartwood is light grey to dark brown. White Oak is mostly straight-grained with a medium to coarse texture.

Rift-sawn lumber is produced by quartering the log then sawing it perpendicular to the growth rings. This method of sawing accentuates the straight, vertical grain. While the look is similar to quarter-sawn lumber, the angle of the cuts are slightly different, minimizing the “flake” effect that is common in quarter-sawn.

A range of grain patterns and colors may appear on the same panel, and adjacent door and drawer fronts may not match each other. These are natural characteristics of Rift White Oak and are not considered a defect.
