Does anyone know anything about shingle oak? I know that it is a species of red oak that was originally used for making shingles for log cabins (hence the name). I have about 250 board feet of the stuff from a tree a friend cut down. I had it quarter sawn and it is drying in my garage. When it is dry, I would like to use it to make stair treads for the steps to my finished basement, but I don't know if it would be a good wood to use. Anyone have an opinion?
