White Oak Backsplash Details
Add a touch of natural wood to complement your butcher block countertops with our white oak backsplash. White oak is native to Central and Eastern North America. It’s known for its medium-brown wood grain, rot-resistance, and durability. Its straight wood grain makes for a fairly uniform appearance.
Our white oak backsplashes are made from genuine, high-quality oak — no faux or imitation wood! Because of white oaks' lighter hue, it can easily complement a range of kitchen designs, from modern and minimalist to rustic or industrial.
Whether you want to add a simple natural wood accent or are planning a full kitchen overhaul, trust the Hardwood Lumber Company to provide high quality woodworking for any size project.
Please Note: Because each piece of wood has its own unique character, grain and color will vary from the sample images shown. All wood backsplashes are custom made for each order. All orders revised or canceled after going into production (approximately 2 to 3 days after order is received) will have a restocking fee of up to 50%.
Warranty Information: Please carefully read all warranty information, including installation instructions and timeframe.
Customize Your White Oak Backsplash
There are several ways you can customize your wood backsplash. We make the process simple: select from the available custom options in the menu above, including sizing, thickness, and finishing.
Your backsplash can be customized to a desired length. Choose from up to 24” depth, 162” long, and 1-½” thick for a truly wide range of sizes.
Our backsplashes are constructed in two styles. Select from butcher block with the strips running the length of the backsplash or face grain.
For best results, wood backsplash should be finished. We can finish your backsplash for you and offer various food-safe materials like Mineral Oil and Fractionated Coconut Oil.
Edge Details and Texture
Edge details can enhance the appearance of your backsplash. Choose from three edge options, including ⅛” radius, ¼” radius, and beveled.
We also offer texture options as part of our finishing process. If you prefer to have your backsplash sanded smooth and have no texture, be sure to select NONE in the Texture Options.
Wire Brushed Texture works best on wood with an open grain such as White Oak, Red Oak, and Ash. On other tighter grain wood species the Wire Brushed Texture will not have the same effect and will not be as visible.
All backsplashes are custom made to order. Shipping may vary depending on your customization options. Please provide for a standard lead of 1-2 weeks for processing, milling, and shipping of white oak backsplash orders.
Note: Lead times may vary based on seasonal demand. Please contact our sales team online or by phone at 1-800-798-1269 for questions regarding current order lead times.
White oak sapwood is light-colored and the heartwood is light to dark brown. White oak is mostly straight-grained with a medium to coarse texture, with longer rays than red oak. White oak therefore has more figure. We use only the higher quality grades of white oak lumber for our products.
