Common Features Of Oak Staircases
Dense & Strong

Oak is particularly popular for staircases as it’s a very dense hardwood that is tremendously strong and hard. Oak is so extraordinarily strong that it couldn’t even be worked to any amount until iron tools were invented and widely used. With the widespread implementation of iron tools, the oak tree could be cut down and it rapidly became one of the main building materials.

Beautiful and durable

Oak Staircases make a beautiful house even more so. You can still find oak staircases in many old churches, castles, and houses because it’s so strong and durable. Even the mighty Royal Navy used oak comprehensively in their ship building because it’s so hard and long lasting.

If you have lived in an old house then you may have lived in a house mainly made of oak. For many people oak was an integral part of their daily lives, it was commonly in use as is plastic is today.

Best state to work with Oak

It was always worked in its green (freshly cut state) because at this stage the timber is relatively soft and workable. Joints can be cut and timbers fitted together. Once oak has seasoned it becomes as hard as iron and until the arrival of modern tools almost impossible to work. Oak staircases today are made using seasoned wood as precision is important. If you built an oak staircase out of green wood it would move considerably as its seasoned.
