Oak is used for a myriad of purposes. Not only is it used for shelving, but it can be used for beams, flooring, foundations, ships, piers, wine and whiskey barrels, and even medicine. Not only that, but the oldest living organism on the planet is a colony of oak trees. The ancient Jurupa Oak colony in sunny California has a staggering age of around 13,000 years. Just like the mythical phoenix, they grow from burned stems, or rise from ashes.
A long-lasting and durable option
Oak is a very hard wood, which makes it strong and durable. Having been used for centuries, or even millennia, as a foundational building material, it was certainly relied upon by our ancestors. And why? Rather than disintegrate as it ages, oak actually gets harder. This makes it an ideal material for your home.
