The quintessential American hardwood, Red Oak has a classic look and excellent strength properties. Its broad heartwood ranges from a pinkish tone to light reddish-brown. These thin boards are machined S4S to 1/8" and 1/4" thicknesses, eliminating wear and tear on your planer. You won't have to worry about chipout, which is difficult to prevent when planing thin stock. Thin boards are ideal for edging, veneering, inlay, marquetry, sides for decorative boxes, bending stock, bent laminations and whatever else your imagination can dream up!

Lumber Details:
  • Tree: May reach a height of about 60 to 90 feet), with a 12 to 36 inch diameter trunk
  • Grain: Usually straight and open. Plainsawn lumber may exhibit a plumed or flared grain appearance, while riftsawn boards show a tighter grain pattern. Quartersawn boards often have a flake pattern, sometimes called tiger rays or butterflies. Color variation is usually pronounced and is dependent upon the origin of the wood and the growing season in that locality
  • Texture: Depends on the rate of growth of the tree. Red oaks from the north are less coarse than the faster growing red oak from southern states.Working characteristics: Red oak is hard, but responds readily to sharp tools
  • Staining: Good staining qualities. Darker colored stain preceded by a light colored filler produces the 'lime' look. High tannin content makes the wood compatible with ammonia treatment to yield a nearly black finish
  • Steam Bending: Often used for steam bending
  • Strength Properties: Bending and crushing strength is high. Medium hardness, heavy weight. Red oak is less decay resistant than white oak or European oak

If you need nice, thin wood, this is for you.
Nice wood. Decent grain. Flat and straight. Would have given 5 stars, but there was some planer tearout on one of the pieces I got. I glued 2 pieces together so I could make 9x 9 floor tiles.

I an in need of a 1/8" reducer for a floor transition from tile to wood. I have found it difficult to find a milled transition for a gap this small and was going to taper one edge of this to use as a transition (after several layers of poly). It would be helpful if it were 3 inches wide to cover some prior floor damage. Would this be available in the 3" width and longer lengths?
Chris A on Mar 22, 2016
I want to buy the Red Oak by the Piece, 1/8" x 1-1/2" x 48". I need to know if that is the actual finished dimensions. It is important the the finished width be actually 1 1/2 in. Are the dimensions stated "finished?"
Eliza S on Jun 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the dimensions are "finished". I have purchased many pieces of differing species and sizes from Rockler and all have been true to the listed dimension.
Do have larger widths like 6 or 7 inches?
Gary L on Oct 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Currently our by the piece Red Oak is available in only 1-1/2, 3, and 5 inch widths.
I need 1 1/2" oak strips to reweave a wood carrier basket, hopefully 1/16". Is tis possible?
