@phillipecouzal,
Make them into an outdoor seat.
etch designs into them
Take a chisel and gouge out a lot of the wood and use it for holding beverages during a barbecue



Millions of ideas.

Red oak has a porous cell structure and the end grain is permeable.

@farmerman,
Red oak does have a reddish cast to the wood and on some trees you can see a reddish tinge to the bark. It's prized by furniture makers and used for floors because it has more figure than white.

But white oak...I absolutely love the stuff. It's just ******* noble. I just got done with a coopering class and all we used was quarter-sawn or radially split white oak; beautiful stuff.

@hightor,
I have an Amishwood lot that will make me quarter sawn and they are quite good at maintaining the volume produced , (They use saws with vry thin kerfs and the boss has a relly good eye)

I was told that red oak is named for the leaf.(The leaves turn reddish in the fall), whereas White oak the leaves are just a dull brown).

Make a memorial that calculates the amount of CO2 that will not be converted into O2 by the felled tree.

Include an illustration of the ecosystem of animals and plants that would have lived in the shade of the tree and the canopy. Include birds, insects, squirrels, ground plants, and even soil flora and fungus that decompose sediments and keep soil healthy and clean/purify water as it leaches down toward the aquifer.

Don't even think of mixing 'juicy fruit' with tobacco flavor.
