"Right on thanks. I'll check that out. Good point, might be good for sheer rails. Might also be good for cross-supporting my frames when I assemble them.. kind of pricy for that use though :(. Sounds like the vendor is crediting me back for…"

"Had to look it up but it's the sapwood vs heartwood that is whats happening.  Apparently white oak has tylosis in the heartwood which plugs the "veins" of the wood that carry water and makes it water resistant.  The sapwood…"

"It looks like white oak, except for the tiny holes all throughout.  My guess is its newer wood from the outside of the tree based on its lighter color.  The wood further towards the center (older) is more honey colored"

"Right on. I contemplated that too. I agree, I have a contractor saw also, and it's definitely cumbersome to use the jig on it."

"Good idea, I ended up free handing mine because the 20 dollar jig I bought was too big to use on a contractor table saw.  Looking forward to following along."

About Me:
I live and work in the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia. It is a goal of mine to build a drift boat for fishing the awesome freestone rivers in this area. I have now closed in my garage, purchased my building material and sourced out my plans.......which of course means I have no more excuses to delay my project!
I came across this site and am so thankful for it. It really looks like a supportive community, and I want to share my project and learn from all of the experience that is posted on this site.. thanks, Kyle
