Topic tags/keywords: oak

I have an abundance of 100 year old native Iowa Red Oak. Unfortunately none of exceeds 3/4” thick and I want to use frame/panel design. I would like to get an opinion about making 1-1/2” x 1-1/2” glue up out some of these boards for the frame.

Depending on how long you’re planning to make it and how heavy you plan to load it, I don’t see why it would not work. I’d not only glue it up, but I’d also screw the pieces together in places where the screws will not show on the finished piece of be in the way of any joinery.

Glad you concur with the process. I did not want to buy new oak to go with the old.

Thanks!
