oak slabs

had an oak log cut Friday. got some good wide slabs. probably 24 wide. they are 2 inches thick and 6ft long. the guy that's giving me a lot of pine cut it on a LT40. log had some rot on the outside but inside was ok. had sat out for 2 years. sense 2013.log was 28-30 on one end and a crotch on the other. may have to use pentacryl on some of the slabs. also wanted to know if its black oak or pen oak.

It looks like it had sat out for 10 years.

I have sawn plenty of oak that has been in 10-15years. Unfortunately, it becomes a quite rough surface.
And this does not go away even when planes, so for fine woodworking it dose not work. But is good to build outdoor furniture with.

A lot of people actually like aged rustic look.
