Help with wood ID
« on: February 08, 2019, 02:20:41 AM »
 Prior to winter I received some small logs that were cut by the Forrest service to clear a road during a fire here in Utah. I recently got around to cutting one of the larger ones up to turn some bowls with. I am baffled by what kind of wood it is. I was hoping that I would be able to get some help to identify it.

The highly visible (to the naked eye) medullary rays indicate that it is an oak, most likely a species of white oak.

Thank you. I have never turned Oak before, being so new to turning. It is just so prominent in the bowl.

One man's chainsaw marks are another man's medullary rays :D

No replies from this camp, I learned my lesson. I would make a suggestion on the turning though. I'd suggest you stay a little further away from the pith. You are opening yourself up for some drying cracks getting that close.
