Oak is a brilliant construction wood because of its strength. It’s commonly found in flooring, furniture, boats and ships. Oak is also used to make wine bottles because it can alter the taste and texture of the wine. The timber resists pesky bugs and doesn’t easily deteriorate. The oak tree has many vessels which allow it absorb water and resist moisture at a higher rate (similar to a chestnut tree) too. Refinishing oak furniture is very easy because of its hard surface and flexibility. Oak stain usually comes in red, pink, brown or white. Red oak stain is the most common choice though because of its aged yet still elegant look.
