Oak wood was first used in the Middle Ages for making floor boards and a prime resource in the golden age of ship building right up until the 19th Century where the naval ships of war were made from this fine wood. Today, antique oak desks are very collectible, not only because they look stunning but also because oak is a very hard wearing wood and so there are many fine examples of fine oak antique furniture.
