Description: Flat cut White Oak veneer exhibits a pleasing “cathedral” design, making it popular among furniture woodworkers, especially those who work in Mission- and Arts and Crafts style projects. White Oak Veneer has a pale yellow brown color. White Oak is a hard wood and relatively easy to work with. It stains and finishes well. Standard grades generally include natural imperfections such as pin knots and natural streaks. The premium grade (or AA grade) Flat Cut White Oak is minus the imperfections.
