Oak is an important deciduous tree for our forests. Central Europe is home to many different types of oak. The most abundant species being the pedunculate and sessile oak. The wood from all the different varieties is very similar in structure. Oak wood has a grey-yellow to yellow-brown core, which differs in color from the surrounding sapwood. For processing, only the heartwood is suitable because the sapwood is not durable. The annual rings are clearly recognisable and give it a uniform grain, which notably has a very fine and broad rays. If the wood is cut diagonally to the trunk, tongue-shaped «vials» are created. Due to the beautiful grain it is a very popular wood. Oakwood is one of the medium-heavy woods, it is hard, durable and can be worked over very well.
