I followed the link from your website to the Sherwood Forest, pretty neat. The Major Oak was impressive , 800 years old.

Nice bowl by the way. I assume that is a white oak species?

Major oak is indeed impressive, what is equally impressive is that there are about 900 similar veteran oaks there. We only have 2 native oaks, not sure what makes something a "white oak" but our species are Quercus robur (pedunculate oak) and Quercus patrea (sesile oak) The wood is indistinguishable, though sessile tends to be more burry and sometimes has a higher proportion of sap.
