Wood Turning & Fine Craft Tools by Cynthia D. Haney, Spindle Maker
Made with White Oak wood from a Oak tree, however it is not all Quercus alba, the white oak. The oak genus Quercus is divided into red and white. The red oaks have sharp tips to the leaf lobes and coarser lumber. White oaks have rounded lobes. White oak is often used for quality flooring and cabinets. I take advantage of the rays and the almost iridescent flecks that run across the growth rings of white oak. Shop using filters if desired.
