I had a good score Thurs. My neighbor was cleaning out his place and came across a full 2”x9.5×96” oak plank his boy was gonna use in high school. He asked if i wanted it, so I said hell ya. Yesterday I cut off a 2-10” pcs and went to it. Darned hard stuff.

The one on the left I wiped down with”Teak Oil”.
The one on the right I used food grade mineral oil.
I’ll send these over to the neighbor.

The DIY jumbo jaws worked out not to bad.

Thanks fer lookin’.

Nice score … and nice job on the bowls! I have always liked the appearance of the grain in oak.

I have some air dried oak I bought around twenty years ago and it was well dried then it is beautiful wood actually a favourite of mine I love oak.When turning it you need really sharp tools and I have also found that I need to wear a glove on my left hand, as those tiny little chips get so hot.WOWEE LOL Alistair
