    I have been asked to design a display stand for a retail antique dealer out of quarter sawn white oak. The design I have in mind requires a round piece of white oak that is about 2-3” in diameter.
    I would like to know if white oak is a good wood for turning. Because of Oak’s open grain, I’m concerned about chip out. Has anyone had experience with turning white oak?

    I have and it does chip easily. I'm curious why "quartersawn" white oak was specified. In a turning, it wouldn't matter a good gol-dang whether it was plain sawn or quartersawn. See http://www.workshopcompanion.com/KnowHow/Design/Nature_of_Wood/1_Wood_Grain/1_Wood_Grain.htm#grain

    With all good wishes,

    It does chip easily.. Are you going to make your turnings from a solid block or a laminated block?
