I have made a small box from what I have been told is “ribbon” oak.
End grain is indicative of white oak, and surface is very figured. This wood was too difficult to hand plane, and I keep my planes in very good condition.
Had the blank run thru a wide belt sander to bring to working surface, and box came out in beautiful form.
Just wish I could find a pic of “ribbon” oak for clarification.
This has been the hardest wood I’ve eeeeeeeeeeeeeever worked.
Bullet proof wood. Saw cuts were very smooth, final sanding was great, finish went on without flaw.
Just want to be able to accurately identify the wood.
Ant sources for pics?
