Learn About Pin Oak
Pin oak is typically used for commercial applications such as building pallets, however, it can be used for a handful of other applications such as outdoor tables, work benches, and more. Outside of commercial applications, it's also used for cabinetry, furniture, trim, and more. It has a reddish-brown color and can be stained to be darker like black walnut. The grain tends to be course, but it takes stains and finishes very well.
These slabs are cheaper than other oak types because pin oak doesn't have the same level of rot resistance as white oak does. It's known for having a minimal durability when compared to other oak trees. Because of this, we typically do not recommend using it for most projects.
Why Pin Oak Might Not Be Right For Your Table
The pros of working with pin oak are often outweighed by the cons. Pin oak grows extremely fast when comparing it to other species of wood. Because of this, it has large growth rings. Pin oak tends to warp and crack much easier than other species of wood. If you're set on a cheap table or piece, we're happy to build one using a pin oak slab. That said, we do not warranty any of our pin oak tables, desks, or other products due to the nature of the wood. That is why we typically recommend this species for applications where size and cost are the most important factors. It's also important to note that since these slabs often warp a lot during the drying process, the rough cut slabs will lose a lot more of their thickness than other woods.
