I have some twisted, cupped, bowed, full of knots, worm holes and and even some of the pith for good measure. I’m not sure if it is red or white oak, Its not good enough for furniture but will do nicely for the shop.
Yesterday after much planing, cutting and gluing, I was able to get the cabinet carcass built.
Because I used a simple rabbet joint on this cabinet I made some walnut dowels to help lock the corners.
It was a productive weekend and I was able to get the doors frames glued up too.
I had some re-claimed wormy chestnut stashed away and re-sawed some to make book matched panels for the doors. I think the chestnut matches up well with the oak.
