French Oak

Solid Hardwood Flooring
by Palladio Wide Planks

The white oak log is sought after by furniture makers, wine barrel makers (coopers), leather companies (tanners) and lumber companies. All of these users are competing for the same limited material. The name “French Oak” comes from the preferred use as wine barrel material. It is very hard, has a tight grain, low porosity and a high content of tannin. This high level of tannin allows the barreled wine to age by eating up oxygen and it gives the wine a sought after aroma and taste. The same tannin is also used by the leather industry as a natural leather softener.
