Not to be a pain in the backside—But you gotta do what you gotta do—Please note

“The pores found in the growth rings on red oak are very open and porous, and should be easily identifiable. White oak, however, has its pores plugged with tyloses, which help make white oak suitable for water-tight vessels, and give it increased resistance to rot and decay.”

-- David in Damascus, MD
