It depends on which period you are talking about (not the one at the end of this sentence :D ).

Try Wallace Nutting's "Furniture of the Pilgrim Century" or Peter Follansbee's recent "Joiner's Work" or any number of books on Arts and Crafts furniture. Also, most books on Windsor and Stick chairs, where the steam bending properties of some parts make oak one of the materials of choice.
