What exactly is printed oak you ask? Its the pattern of quarter sawn oak printed onto the wood, usually maple, and it was a very popular finish done in the early 19th century. Quarter sawn oak has always been very desireable and expensive, in the early 19th century, maple was plentiful and much more affordable. What makes printed oak so unique, is it easily fools the eye.
