Welcome to the CB Gang. You did a nice job. Thanks for sharing. Also, send me some of that Irish bog Oak, and I’ll send you some Pennsylvania Cherry.

Very nice, I will check my bog to see if I have any of that oak!
Glad to have you at LJs.

That is one nice looking CB. I have never seen Irish Bog Oak, it looks different from white oak. I don’t see any pores in the end grain, and the wood itself looks more like ash. Is it rare to find?
