The weight of dry, seasoned Oak depends on it's type (English

Oak, Red Oak Cork Oak etc), but will be in the range of 590 to 930

kg/cubic metre. This is an enormous variation, but there are lots

of varieties. To convert kg/m³ to lbs/cu ft divide by 16.01846. If

you know the specific type of Oak you are working with, the answer

can be more precise.
