Re: Toe Rail Replacement with White Oak or ?
Oak belongs inside. Even if you paint it will look like a 2nd hand repair deal, because it will be. You need a tight grained, dark, weather resistant wood to not distract from appearance. You need teak to not lower resale.
Look up IPE, or even mahogany decking.
As I said in another thread, cheap, fast, good. Pick one.
