Story: Some of you may recall a project I posted a short while ago of nesting bowls these bowls came from Live Oak, There wasn’t much difference that I could tell between the post oak and the live oak other then the color, the live oak seemed easier to work as this post oak has a lot of splinters that like to stick out in different places, This is just one of many post oak logs among the live oak that I have in my collection, I got all of the post oak logs from a neighbor that had one cut down from his yard, this log I worked while it was still green and had to do a lot of repair work on all of the splitting and cracks.
Build: This was a rascal to make due to all the work that had to be done with filling in all of the cracks and splitting, I first cut the bottom and then the top before cutting out the inside, the plug that came out I made a tray out of, sanded all parts to smooth, glued the bottom on and the final part was gluing the lip onto the bottom of the lid. Measurements are 8” x 6” x 4 1/2” finished in a single coat of tung oil and several coats of my one mix wipe on poly.
Thanks for looking and comments are always enjoyed.
