We sourced this White Oak log from Slovania where more then half the country is covered by naturally diverse, old growth forests. High altitudes and mountainous terrain protect the forests from being developed for agricultural use. This allows for little to no disturbance in the growth cycle of the tree allowing for superb growth rings and consistent grain structure. Slovanian Oak has long been the wood of choice for Italian furniture producers precisely due to its straight grain and sturdiness.
