Thin European Oak Timber
Thin European Oak manufactured from prime grade French oak and sanded on one face. The timber is supplied in random lengths, which vary depending on stock availability at the time of manufacture.
Please note: The timber is sawn and then sanded on one face only and is not machine planed. If you require fully planed, square edge timber please see our range of Planed All Round Oak. It is normal for the thin wood to display a slight curvature across the width due to the natural movement of the timber.
Our thin European Oak is sourced from France and machined to order in our factory here in Yorkshire. The timber is sawn and then sanded on one face and is suitable for woodworking, furniture making, model making and crafts such as marquetry, intarsia and luthiery.
A fairly hard, heavy and dense hardwood, with high crushing and bending strength, low stiffness and resistance to shock loads. It is very good for turning and steam-bending. It is suitable for gluing, painting, sanding, staining and varnishing and will take high polish. European oak can be darkened by fuming with ammonia. Due to tannins present in the timber, oak wood will react with ferrous metals when wet. Select non-ferrous (brass or stainless steel) fixings where possible.
Thin oak timber is often used by hobbyists for decorative veneers and crafting.
