Oak is a hard, heavy, durable wood harvested from trees of the genus Quercus. Oak was frequently used during the middle ages for buildings, furniture and tableware. Oak chips are also used when tanning leather.

In Australia the wood known as Tasmanian Oak is sometimes substituted for European Oak but is not related, it being a species of Eucalyptus.
