A machine showed up at my work from Germany bolted to an oak skid. I thought I noticed some wild grain near one end so I resawed a few pieces off (my first resaw). Well, it cracked all to hell but I used it anyway. The end grain sides and ends were part of a wine-processing machine that I found in a field at my work as well (the wood, not the machine). I work in a winery BTW. It had been out in the dirt and elements for at least seven years (because I know that is when we started using UHMW in place of oak—damn bureaucrats). So, this made completely from oak that everyone told me wasn’t good for anything.
