Chinese Oak Products: Chinese Oak wood is dense finer grained hardwood about 5% harder than Red Oak. The heartwood is light brown and some boards have a lighter pinkish tint to them. Chinese Oak is a more durable material than Red Oak and is ideal for outdoor furniture. Furniture is packaged as fully assembled fold away - or simple knock down. The tannic acid in the wood protects it from fungi and insect attack.
