The Finer Things in Life.
Favorited by furniture craftsman for its tight grain and displays dramatic medullar figure called ray fleck, quarter sawn white oak has been a staple of the American furniture industry dating back to the mid-19th century. The use of quarter sawn white oak peaked in popularity in the furniture of the American Arts & Crafts movement in the first part of the 20th century. These heirloom favorites are still in use in many homes today--and if you're lucky enough to find a rare piece by Stickley Brothers or Green & Green in an antique store today, you'll pay a hefty sum for it.
Pictured here in Boardwalk accents, this white oak casket is stained in ebony with satin amber finish. Inspired by the opulence of the 1930s "boardwalk" downtown and destination districts for tourism and entertainment in America's East Coast urban landscapes from Atlantic City to Myrtle Beach.
