Another oak tree fell on my parent’s house (seriously this makes three now), no major structural damage, just a broken window. But their misfortune is my gain, tons of fresh wood. Giant logs, probably 3 feet in diameter. They are huge.
So I figured I’d try out something new, quarter sawn oak, on a pair of cutting boards.
Very simple and straight forward project, but I’m really happy with how they turned out. The grain is beautiful and almost no splitting or checking, rare in my experience with green oak.
