There are many varieties of oak, and it helps in woodworking to know the distinctions and differences between the various types of stock. Red and White Oak are the two type of Oaks available.

Red oak is porous and has open grains. It’s more prone to shrink than white oak. Compared to beech or maple, red oak finishes and stains easily and doesn’t have blotching problems. Because the open pores in red oak absorb stain, the grain patterns become very evident when a dark stain is used as a finish.
Red oak will stain black when water penetrates the surface. If you have red oak flooring, be especially careful not to expose it to standing water. Obviously, red oak doesn’t have the water resistant qualities of white oak.
