1, different origins
You don't see their names are similar, in fact they are very different. They grow in different areas. Oak is basically distributed in the northern hemisphere. It has excellent wood and is a common material in furniture making. Oak is currently available in the market as red oak and white oak. Rubber wood is a rubber tree that is a subtropical tree species, mostly distributed in southern China and Southeast Asia. Compared to the two, the price of oak is more expensive than rubber wood.
2, different texture
From the material point of view, oak is a medium-to-high-grade wood. Its texture is hard and heavy, and it is difficult to tie even nails. The rubber wood is lighter in weight and softer in texture, and its durability is not as good as oak.
3, the texture is different
Perhaps from the outside, it is difficult to see the difference between the two, but if you use a magnifying glass to observe, you will find that the texture between them is very different. The oak has a small hole, a clear texture, a beautiful wooden ray, and a clear mountain-shaped wood grain. The texture of the rubber wood is rather vague, with large tube holes, loose wood grain, and some specks or black spots.
4, different durability
From their growing rings, we can see that the durability of these two materials is different. For example, the growth of oak takes decades or even centuries, and the growth of rubber wood only takes five to ten years. Therefore, the cost of rubber wood is higher and the price is more expensive. The price of rubber wood is cheaper. Oak furniture is a high-grade furniture, which has the advantages of not being easy to absorb water, resisting corrosion, strong strength and firm texture; while rubber wood furniture has a sour taste, because rubber wood contains more sugar and is not easy to remove, so furniture made of rubber wood is prone to appear. Discoloration, decay and insects.
