Besides Red Oak, White Oak is another extremely popular flooring choice in American homes. 
The heartwood is a light brown color and some boards have a pinkish tint or a slight grayish cast.  The sapwood is white to cream. 
White Oak's grain is open, with longer rays than Red Oak and occasional swirls and burls.

What is "Rustic Grade"?
Rustic Grade has larger tight knots and the most color variation. Also referred to as #2 or Third grade. It is the perfect choice when character marks and contrasting appearance is desired.

Please note unfinished flooring is sold in open, strapped bundles and not sold in boxes.  This product  must be purchased in bundles.  Bundle size may vary.

      did repair work in my house and this flooring matched perfectly with the 50 yr old stuff we have down. The grains, color streaks and knots give this floor great character....as a wood floor should have.

      Comments about R.L. Colston 3/4" x 2-1/4" White Oak:

      This product is great if you are looking for a natural rustic cabin look. There are some mill issues with the wood and the product had to be cleaned up with my saws and the grooves reroutered in a lot of the wood. Not 100% of the wood is usable from the factory, but with a little know how and ingenuity, your floor can look great. Overall, I am satisfied with this product. The price is right at [$] per square foot.

      Comments about R.L. Colston 3/4" x 2-1/4" White Oak:

      The natural color without stain looks great. Large color variation and patterns from one board to the next. Knots can trap dirt when cleaning. Looks old and original in an older house. Most people say WOW!!! when they see it for the first time. The #2 material costs a little less, but installation costs a little more. Bottom line cost is about the same. If installer tells you 5% extra for waste normally, purchase 10 to 15% extra to compensate for some unusable boards.

            Comments about R.L. Colston 3/4" x 2-1/4" White Oak:

            I bought 400 sf to install on my first floor of a cabin. Worked perfectly.

            Product: My batch was at least 80% free of knots and worm-holes. So I was able to pick some very nice pieces for the main areas, with the other boards used for areas that would not be seen. I also got a range of long, mid, and short pieces. Only a couple of warped boards. I did have some messed up tongues and grooves, although most of that was on the under-side and did not affect the look. I was able to use some boards with broken tongues by creatively hammering a few small nails in place of the tongue and using glue. This added to installation time, but I got almost no waste.

            Installation: My installation took parts of 5 days for a complicated 400 sf. But that was because the floor was not perfectly level, although I got it close, and because I was picky with pieces and placement. But the wood was generally forgiving and installation was straightforward.

            Finish: I liked the wood so much I didn't want a stain. However, once you sand it, it begins to look a bit dull. The solution I came upon was by research and luck. After cleaning the sawdust, I put on one coat of Zinsser Bull's Eye Sealcoat (a wax-free shellac). I used a varathane applicator pad from Low3s. This really brought out the color. I also wanted to use a water-based polyurethane, so I had to go with wax-free. I finished with 4 coats of water based varathane polyurethane from Low3s.

            Durability: Awesome so far. I scratched it a little when I got a small rock stuck in my shoe, but that was surface. High heels dented the pine floor in the bedroom, but did not appear to do anything to this oak.

            I do recommend the rustic grade if you want diversity in your wood. It looks great.

              I installed this in my 8x8 pantry, wood was nice, install was easy, finish came out good, My only problem was that one of the bundles was short about a 1/3 and one was short about a 1/4 I had to drive back to the LL to exchange the short bundels. Also they had mostly short lengths in them.

                        #2 or Rustic grade; UMMARY: The purpose of Rustic grade flooring is to produce a floor suitable for homes, general utility use, or where character marks and contrasting appearance is desired. Rustic grade flooring has a lower average plank length than Natural grade flooring.

                        DETAILED: Rustic Grade flooring may contain all natural variations in coloration and sound wood characters except severe defects such as: shattered or rotten ends, badly split ends, shake, advanced rot, or severe milling imperfections which would materially impair the serviceability of the floor. Knot holes and open characters which can be readily filled are admitted. Rustic grade pre-finished flooring may have a plank face that contains a limited amount of finishing imperfections including, but not limited to: light/moderate grainy surface, debris, streaks, uncoated bevel, dents/ scratches, lipped ends, or orange peel/ropey finish. Finish skips are not permitted. When assembled, Rustic grade flooring should not exhibit gaps exceeding 0.031”or end/side over-wood(e.g. height variation between adjacent boards) exceeding 0.030”.

                      Can this flooring be installed over a concrete slab subfloor?

                    • Q:

                      I recently purchased a 1920 home that was damaged from a tornado. the pier and beam foundation and a 3/4 inch plywood foundation over which really ugly linoleum has been glued. I'm looking for a product that i can nail directly over the existing floor. i have a nail gun and don't mind the look of top nail holes. Also, i want to put the hardwood in part of the house now, and the rest in 9 to 12 months. is it likely that i can get the same flooring in that time frame. thanks
