OAK TURNING BLOCK
Jun 7th, 2016 at 12:39pm
 
I have a friend who wants a bowl for a present for his wife. To match other stuff it needs to be made from Oak, finished in what they call Honey Oak, and 7/9" diameter and 3 to 4" thick. Nothing like that around here, Arizona. Any thoughts on a source for stock such as this?

It's a bit hard to tell from the furniture they have but I believe it's White Oak. I don't think Red Oak would stain to the golden color of what they have. Not sure about that as I haven't tried to achieve that color with Oak. Most of what I've done with Oak has been staining it dark and that's been with Red Oak. Too, I'm some concerned about checking what with the low humidity here in Arizona. "Thanks for the reply. Ed
