Quercus Rubra

A very popular wood for cabinetry and furniture during the late eighties and early nineties, this is the wood of middle-class American childhoods. Glossy, polyurethane coated floors and cabinets make this the wood of the people. It’s popularity is well earned – it’s handsome and works easily. While not currently in vogue in kitchen decor, it’s doubtful we’ve heard the last from this classic.
