The Live Oak (Canyon Oak) slabs are 3 inches thick and up to 10 feet long. The slabs are natural edge (some bark may still be attached), rough cut and unfinished. Live Oak is a White Oak species. It is very hard and heavy. It is frequently found on very steep slopes and it usually grows at odd angles. This Live Oak was large and unusually straight. It was rescued from a logging road spur expansion. Live Oak is typically characterized by a very wide yellowish striated sapwood. The heartwood is a light brown with a lot of dark staining, especially around the knots. Slabs can be flattened for $4.50 a board foot or $6.75 a square foot (when only one side is to be flattened).
