Wood species available

Botanical name rovere europeo:
Quercus petraea L.

Local names: Roul, Galera, Gettina, Ischia

Names in other European countries: French: Rouvre, Chêne pedunculé; English (generic): Oak; Italian: Rovere europeo; German: Stieleiche, Traubeneiche; Spanish: Roble.

Origin: Origin In ancient times the common oak dominated the Po Valley in Italy but now occupies a much-reduced area. In Central and Southern Italy, the other two species are dominant. In Central and Eastern Europe, the common oak forms extensive top-quality forests.


The yellowish-white sapwood is sharply differentiated from the brown heartwood that changes to darker shades over time. The medullary rays are very obvious, especially on radial surfaces where shiny areas form. Thanks to the large pores of the spring wood, growth rings are clearly identifiable. The fresh-cut wood has a strong acid smell and blackish spots appear on it from contact with metal tools.

The drying process is slow and not very easy because it is difficult to obtain a uniform distribution of moisture through the boards, especially if they are thick. Faced with this difficulty, if use is made of hot-air ovens, collapse and localized warping are often seen.

Botanical name American White Oak:
Quercus alba

Local names: White Oak

Names in other European countries: English (generic): Oak; Italian: Rovere Americano Bianco; German: Stieleiche, Traubeneiche; Spanish: Roble

Origin: Widespread throughout the eastern United States. The group of white oaks includes many species, of which about eight are marketed.


White oak is similar in color and appearance to European oak. The sapwood of American white oak is light-coloured and the heartwood is light to dark brown. White oak has mostly straight grain with more or less pronounced texture (medium to coarse) and longer medullary rays than red oak. White oak therefore has a higher-quality aspect.

Must be dried slowly; tendency to warp; some collapse and internal cracking.

Denominations other European countries: French: Frene; English: Ash; German: Bait; Spanish: Fresno.
Provenance: In Italy and in Europe (excluding the northern end) present sporadically in the mixed hardwood formations, from the plain to the Middle Mountain.


The sapwood of whitish yellowish color differs from the slightly darker heartwood: sometimes a central blackish zone appears, with irregular boundary (olive ash) presumably caused by fungal attacks. The radial surfaces appear of pearly gloss thanks to the numerous and very fine medullary rays.

The drying process is quite easy, but in its course there can be serious deformation: it is therefore necessary to proceed with prudence and at the end to undergo a good reconditioning to the saats.

The sapwood of walnut is creamy-white while the heartwood is from light to dark chocolate-brown, sometimes with a purplish cast and darker streaks. Walnut can be supplied as natural or evaporative so as to darken the sapwood. The grain is generally straight, sometimes with sinuous or curly forms that produce a variegated and decorative design. The heartwood, dark in colour, tends to lighten over time on exposure to ultraviolet light.

Slow drying improves performance, reducing the possibility of degradation. This wood has good stability.
