Quick Overview

Three thin wood boards at 800mm long and 197mm wide in the thickness of your choice. The boards are machined from solid character grade European Oak, containing some knots, checks and figuring.

The timber is sanded on one face only. If you require fully planed, prime grade timber, please see our range of Planed All Round Oak.

Please note: It is usual for the thin wood boards 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 sanded on one face and is suitable for woodworking, model making and crafts such as marquetry, intarsia and luthiery.

Properties
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.

Durability
Extremely durable.

Typical Uses
Thin oak timber is often used by hobbyists for decorative veneers and crafting.
