WildOak (French Oak)

WildOak (French Oak)

WildOak logs are selected from Tronçais (a French National forest), grown in the Allier region in deep rich loamy soils. These excellent growing conditions produce very rapid growth with minimal lateral expansion resulting in an extremely tight grain.
Harvesting French Oak from these regions is vital to ensure a high tannin content that is contained in the wood. This makes French Oak the best timber for ageing, fuming and applying the latest reactive stains as they react with the tannin producing amazing unique colours that simple stains cannot achieve.

The quality oak from French

There are a few distinct qualities that set French Oak apart from oak sourced out of Eastern Europe, China and America.

One inherent difference is that the tannin content is much higher in French Oak than all other oak. Tannin (from the German word Tanna or Tannenbaum meaning fir tree) is a substance made from the polyphenolic compounds that are found in the wood. The high content of tannin means that our reactive stain technology is far more effective in achieving a subtle reaction with the wood resulting in different tones and colours that cannot be found in other oak.

French Oak Superiority over Eastern European Oak,
American White Oak and Chinese Honey Oak:

  • Higher tannin content for reactive stains fuming and ageing.
  • Tighter grain structure producing a more dense timber suitable for flooring.
  • More stable raw material suitable for Australia's harsh climate.
