Excellent job! Did you have much trouble with the midsection, where the rings overlap? Turned green or dry?

I’m like Andrew with regards to that mid section?, oak can be a right “B” when feathering the grain like this, The raised neck fits well, The oil has realy poped that grain . nice job Will. :))

Your kind words are much appreciated, thanks.

Andrew/Pete- If you would have told me in advance of the ‘disturbed grain’ problem with red oak, I would have been more careful. But not knowing (first time turning this timber) I just let this green wood fly, but had to sharpen more than usual- especially when hollowing.
