We hold large stocks of 25.4mm American white oak which is used for all our American White Oak products. Orders up to 23mm will be solid and anything thicker than 23mm will be laminated. However, in some cases where the timber is very wide we will also have to laminate in the thickness for orders under 23mm thick. For internal use this is a far superior product to solid timber but for external we would advise you to contact us via telephone or email. If you are unsure whether the timber will be laminated, don’t hesitate to contact us and we will advise accordingly.
American White Oak is a timber used for internal joinery and has become very popular over the last few years. Traditional Products have been supplying American White Oak predominantly connected with the staircase industry for 30 years ie. strings, treads, newels and handrails. The inch oak we bring into the country is from the Appalachian Mountains of America; it is very good quality and is mainly used for the manufacture of handrails. If the section is thicker, ie. over 23mm, the piece of PAR timber (planed all round) will be laminated. Our factory is heated to 19°C 24/7. The timber is acclimatised at this temperature and then laminated in special presses. The timber is then machined to the required dimensions. As a company we are very particular regarding colour matching and what will arrive on your doorstep is a piece of PAR timber with very little colour variation, no sapwood whatsoever and free from any knots, in fact within reason a first class product.
The website shows the maximum timber thickness as 91mm but in practice we can laminate timber up to any thickness. Width wise we have timber which will finish up to 300mm and lengths up to 4.2 metres. In practice longer pieces of timber over 3.6 metres do carry a price premium so wherever possible always buy the length of timber you require. Do not buy longer lengths with the intention of cutting them shorter and also pieces longer than 3.6 metres have a surcharge from the delivery company.
