Thanks for showing. They are very nice. I have heard of bog oak but this is the first time I have even seen a picture of it.

Is bog oak hard to get? Expensive?

Very nice turnings. That is funny because last night I was trying to identify some wood that was given me in my tree book and came upon bog oak and read a little about it very interesting.

Very nice. I like the color. Does it smell when you turn it. I turned a bowl our of redwood that was part of a Rail Road trussel in the Great Salt Lake for over 100 years. It really was smelly while I turned it. It was beautiful when I got finished and coated it with lacker.
