RE: [MedievalSawdust] Red or White Oak
- Red oak does have its uses - I just replaced a floor in an old Victorian with red oak and it turned out beautifully. I have also turned various items of red oak, including a carver's mallet and several magic wands. Whereas I would not again use it for a mallet (it has started to splinter along the more used areas and the rock maple mallet I turned has fared far better over the years), It is a good hardwood to use when price is a consideration. Save the pine for the fireplace.In Magical Service,Malaki-----Original Message-----

I have come to the conclusion that white oak makes lovely furniture
and red oak makes excellent firewood.

That's not totally fair to red oak. It can be used for nice funiture as long
as you know how to work with it and know what to do to compensate
for the differnences.
That being said I have to agree that it is much easier to use white oak.
