I set aside this log earlier in the season. I knew that deep down inside it was going to have an interesting grain pattern. I could see how this piece of oak had almost a swirly grain, as if the tree grew under enormous pressure.
I screwed this to a piece of 1x and ran it (safely) through the tablesaw. Oh, what beauty to find within!
a second pass to take a peek at the long grain
The final piece of “S4S” is approx 15.5×3 x 1.5. Managed to cut this with very little waste despite some twist!
I think this will make some very nice looking pens, or an interesting (albeit small) box.
