FAS Planed All Round American White Oak
American White Oak is perfect for heavy construction, furniture, pews and pulpits, doors counters, ladder rungs and coffins. One of its more popular uses though is for making containers for beer, wine and alcoholic spirits – Cooperage White Oak Barrels.
Although it has similar properties to its European counterpart the American Oak tends to have more variation in colour ranging from pale yellow-brown to pale reddish-brown. Despite being a durable timber, American Oak isn’t suitable for external use and is better utilised internally for furniture, ornamental pieces, pews and other internal joinery.
Planed American White Oak has a smooth ready to use finish so all you need to do is cut the timber down to the length you need (Planed All Round Timber is supplied slightly over length). The sizes you enter when working out the price for your timber are the finished sizes so these are what the timber will be planed down to.
Our American Oak is graded as “FAS” which is the highest quality available in imported American and African timbers.
FAS Grade Timber yields long, clear cut boards which is ideal for furniture, cabinetry and interior joinery. This is the highest quality timber and comes from the original “First and Second” Grade found in American, African and some European timbers.
American White Oak Tree
Native to central and eastern North America, White Oak is commonly found in Minnesota, Ontario, Quebec, Florida and Texas. The trees grow between 15m and 30m tall and their trunks are around 1m in diameter.
Oak trees shed varying numbers of acorns every year and the mature trees have what’s called a “Mast” year where acorns will rain down in excessive amounts. The year before the “Mast” the Oaks have what’s called a starve year where almost no acorns are produced, this is believed to starve off mammal populations, so that the acorns have chance to grow. This is because only 1 in 10,000 acorns actually grow into Oak trees so in order to survive the oak tree needs to make the most out of its “Mast” year.
We have built our reputation on supplying quality timber, ensuring you have the greatest percentage of usable American White Oak timber possible from your order.

Our timber is imported straight from sawmills on the continent. Our usual lead times are therefore 14 - 17 working days.
Delivery cost varies by location. Please click here to open our delivery cost page in a new window.
Our delivery lorries visit different parts of the country on different days, so once your order is ready we will work with you to arrange a delivery day for when one of our lorries is in your area. We will always arrange the delivery day in advance with you.
We deliver weekdays Monday to Friday between the hours of 8am to 5pm. Our delivery vehicles will have multiple jobs on them which can affect the delivery time to you, depending on factors such as traffic and how long it takes to offload the previous jobs. The driver will call you in advance with an estimated time of arrival to make sure you'll be there.
Aside from delivery locations that are priced on application, your delivery will be provided with means of offloading from the truck. This may be by HIAB (lorry with a crane arm), or by supplied manpower. The method will be determined by the haulage company we use based on your location and available options at the time. Please note, both offload options will drop your order to the side of the lorry, they won't be able to carry it around the back of a property, for example.
For areas that are priced on application, by default, we will quote for delivery on a flat-bed lorry that you'll need to arrange to offload yourself. We can quote for offloading on request, but to these areas it's usually prohibitively expensive, and cheaper for you to hire a forklift, or arrange to have enough people on-site to offload.
The ordering process
