9 mighty woods for outdoor projects
White oak, the "whiskey barrel" wood, differs from red oak in that it is much less porous. Moisture can't wick up its end grain. Super-strong, white oak features stainable, straight-grained wood with heartwood that resists decay. Like redwood and cedar, it splits rather easily, so you do need to predrill screw holes for fasteners.
