Topic tags/keywords: oak

Any of you ever worked with green streaked oak. Picked up some 8/4 red oak at sawmill with green streaking in it possibly to make a vanity top with. Curious what happens when you finish it and it ages.

“The greenish color is indicative of fungal or viral staining, almost always called mineral.”

Source, look under Gene Wengert's comment.

We ran across some of the same a few years back, and a local sawyer said the same about it. It will work the same, and it finishes with a neat look. Though it will keep the color, or at least ours did. If a person just wanted a RO look, it ain’t that.

Awesome. I really like the green feathering in the board so glad to hear it stays during milling and finishing.

Have your say...
