Northern White Oak
White Oak took over from Yellow Pine as the wood flooring of choice in the mid 20th century, but was quickly surpassed by Red Oak. White Oak Flooring had its zenith of popularity in the late 19th and early 20th century during the Arts & Crafts period where white oak was used for everything from flooring to trim & paneling to furniture. A denser, slightly darker overall wood with a less prominent grain than Red Oak, White Oak is a tan to brown color with no pinks or reds. An oil-based finish will deepen and warm up the white oak's color slightly and enhance the grain.
