Another father’s day project. He specifically wanted Oak. Had this old log just laying there. At first I was going to chop this up in blocks, but when I seen the grain I think part of this log will be made into boards.

Thanks for looking

Very nice. That will make some nice boxes, I’m sure, and/or whatever will be sweet

That is some unusual oak with the really dark ring just inside the sapwood. The cross is neat but I would worry about it if it has to live outside.
