The mightiest and most valuable deciduous tree from the moderate temperature zones, the oak, often lives 500 years and sometimes even over 1000 years. Oak wood is firm, hard, sturdy and heavy (0,7 kg/dm³), its core is brownish while its sapwood is somewhat yellowish-white and both areas have bright medullary rays running through them. When dried out, oak shrinks very little and the wood lends itself well to turning and bending. The lighter sapwood is not weather resistant. Oak wood is mainly used for furniture and interior furnishings, as parquet or wood floors, for windows or as veneer.
These hardwood board segments provide a large range of wood colours and textures for use in model making and woodturning. The pieces are air-dried, leaving the moisture content as a rule between 12 and 13%. The sides of the wood pieces tend to darken somewhat as a result of the open air drying.
