What is Oak?

Oak belongs to a beach family, Fagaceae, the genus Quercus and is native to the northern hemisphere. There are over 500 extant species of oak, both deciduous and evergreen. It has been used as hardwood timber since time immemorial. The wood density is 0.75 g/cm3 (0.43 oz/cu In), making it the exceedingly sturdy material choice for furniture like shelves, cabinets, and doors. The oak wood has a dense constitution also resistant to fungal attacks and insects. It is an instrumental component for hardwood forests. 

What Colour is Oak wood? 

A natural oak can acquire any hue from light beige to dark brown to red. It is not convenient to distinguish various types of oak based upon the color. Even the same oak tree can undergo different colors throughout its life. Some oak wood can look as dark as walnut or as bright as stained in a vivid hue. Oak pieces change the color as the year passes. Mainly oak trees, like any other tree, experience various color shifts between the heartwood and sapwood periods. 

Is Oak a Hardwood or a Softwood?

The distinction, either the wood is softwood or hardwood, does not refer to its ability to resist damage. Oak is typically hardwood, yet the difference is also contingent upon the fact of whether the wood has come from a gymnosperm tree or a dicot. Leafy trees come from dicot groups and are hardwood. Gym and fir belong to a gymnosperm group are called softwood. 

Where Does Oak Wood Come From?

Oak comes from oak trees and is found all over the world but the best quality oak is sourced from three central regions; England, Europe, and America. European and English both are the hub of similar oak; however, American oak is different. English oak grows all across England and has attractive colors with a prominent grain. European oak also grows all across European countries, including Germany, Croatia, Poland, and many more. Shades of trees can vary from tree to tree and branch to branch. Variation contrasts of the material create a beautiful finish without requiring heavy ornamentation’s.

Some oak wood species are rigid than others and can support more weight. Companies that market products as they are real oak but only imitate wood or cut corners of oak wood construct an inferior product as a result and make the overall buying process extremely hard.

  • Is the wood sustainably sourced?
  • Are you getting the life-time quality guarantee of the product?
  • Is the piece built to last?

How to mount oak floating shelves? 

Ideally, consider mounting oak floating shelves to a wall stud for the project’s best supportive base. No additional help is needed for installing an oak floating shelf on a stud wall. However, you may need extra support called molly plugs or anchors to work with drywall or plaster wood.

  • Mark the distance on both ends of the wall where you want the shelf to mount. 
  • Draw a discrete line using a level across the wall to ensure that the shelf will stay straight.
  • For mounting a shelf in a non-stud wall, consider grabbing a drill to create holes in the wall for the anchor.
  • Insert anchors into the holes, following the direction on the package.
  • Slide shelf into the bracket.
