Western Chestnut or “Tanoak” is a hard, heavy wood that in many ways resembles the true oaks, but with tighter infrequent pores and a more decorative appearance. As a result, the wood is evenly textured, with little apparent grain, and broad visible rays. The wood ages to a variation of tannish and reddish-brown colors, with some darker natural “staining.” It is difficult to distinguish the heartwood from the sapwood. Tanoak is highly rated for its strength properties. It is noted for hardness, resistance to abrasion, stiffness, and bending strengths – making it an excellent choice for flooring.
