What is Texas Post Oak?
Texas Post Oak is just a White Oak, right? Sure, just like Garth Brooks is just a singer!
Post Oak is to the oak world of luxury as Garth has been to the continued growth of country music. Texas Post Oak is a salvaged wood mainly found in the Brazos Valley of Texas.
Its distinction comes from its inherent beauty found in the naturally occurring color variations and less pronounced grain pattern. It is very different than any other Oak.
