Amazing skills you have! Incredible work, and how difficult is oak!
I carve little pieces, mostly tobacco pipes, and I admire your work, you make me want to try to make bigger sculptures!
May I ask where do you find bog oak pieces?

I got the bog oak when they started to explore a big location for building houses near the city Zwolle. Maybe I have found a new location where they are digging for a big project, changing the way of an river around a city.  In that area have grown oak along the river "IJssel" About 2000 years ago the sea level rised till that area. After that the wood is on a sediment of 2 meter. When making the underground infra they dig out the wood they met.

Wow, that's an interesting story! So the wood was wet and you had the need to air-drying it before working it? It is the same process used for the other woods?
May I ask if you have some small scrap pieces to sell, for the pipe bowls?

If you are in the neighbourhood you can come along and look for some pieces you can use. The pieces I have are to heavy to sent by post.

Yes! Here it is rather usual/trendy to inpragnate oack floors with oil (3 times). It gives the oak a soft/light natural look and protected the wood for dertynes. I had a little rest which I used for the horse. It has the same colour effect as wax. The problem with wax is that u have to repead it after a certain time. The oil doesn't have that problem.

Thank you for the explanation :) I know really very little about it. I always wanted oak floor, but at the time of rebuilding the house it was out of my financial posibilities. But who knows, maybe after some years, when the current floor will be too tired, I might get one ..and oil it 3 times :D

May be a suggestion to you if it is so far with your floor. Last year I changed, after 19 year, the topfloor in oak. Oiled the planken outside. In this way we could stay using the topfloor and could put the furniture immediately on the right place and less of smell in the house. :-)

Hmm, that's a great idea, I will keep it in mind when I will finally get to changing the floor :) Thank you :PeachBlossom:
