I don’t know the wood, don’t think it’s oak.
Starting as firewood, turning a spindle, and then a box, is pretty fun and a good test of skills.

Nice barrel. The bark would appear to be live oak. I had to cut an old live oak that was dieing, and saved the trunk and had it sawed and air dried. Very hard, very heavy, hard and beautiful when finished.

That is beautiful. Just the right size for a nice large bag of M&M’s.

I know its not live oak, I am too far north. Water oak, or swamp white oak, quercus alba, maybe. It certainly could be some sort of oak, but I havent looked it up. Its so red near the center of the logs though, i thought oak would stay that uniform blonde and brown throughout and not show so much dark red.
Theres only mineral oil on it right now

Nice turning, looks like a little barrel. That’s the best kind of wood, free wood.
