|I love the look of different wood grains. When I was a kid, I received a sampler kit of exotic woods sold by Constantine's in the Bronx. Each sample was only a veneer thickness, about an inch and half by three inches. They included Teak, Zebrawood, Ebony, CocoBolo, Rosewood, Mahogany; many types of the latter. I always loved looking at them, and still have them. I just can't afford to use them so I've had to use others like Oak.|
|But I still love Oak. It has a strong grain and outlasts anything, even the owner. I have a new recipe for you Oak Cooks out there too.|
Take 1 Oak Volute, 1 Oak Banister, 1 Oak Medallion, 20 White Balusters and 1 Oak Shoe.
Lots of measuring, cutting, drilling, screwing and a lots of checking with the level and bingo you get this beauty.
Next a new Oak floor with a Butternut finish.
|The Oak floor is nearing completion and my wife wanted to see what it looks like with some of the furniture in place.|
