WHAT DOES SQUARE EDGED OAK MEAN?
European Oak square edged means cutting along the edge of the OAK board on both sides with the result that the same width is shown over the entire length of the board. The end user of sawn timber square edged has a much better precise yield calculation when buying square-edged oak. The molding / furniture production is therefore easier to calculate. This is an important factor in the effective price comparison.
PRE-DRYING FOR SQUARE EDGED EUROPEAN OAK
The production of square edged OAK is made on the modern band mill, only the best quality logs are selected for this. You can easily see when the quality of a log changes and react to change into a lower grade.
The surface gets stabilized through careful pre-drying with airdrying always under roof. This has a positive effect. We protect every layer of oak boards from wind, rain and sun shine. In addition, every wooden package is permanently under roof. Now the slow drying of the lumber begins in a cool and humid climate. This occurs when large quantities of fresh sawn OAK is packed tightly. The best color result suported this way.
Pre-drying that is too slow can also affect the color. Our Experience through many years of drying wood gives us this good result. With a constant climat control, we dry carefully our fine European OAK wood product. That´s our success of consistent OAK square edged quality.
