Rated as Durable
Has a tell-tale smell that is common to most oaks. Most find it appealing.
Heartwood is a light to medium brown, commonly with a reddish cast. Nearly white to light brown sapwood is not always sharply demarcated from the heartwood. Quartersawn sections display prominent ray fleck patterns.
Preferred choice of those who favour opulence over the ordinary.
