One of my favorite types of wood to select, when searching in the forest for walking stick material is Oak. For some reason here in Kentucky the worms love to tunnel under the bark as the stick cures.
I remove the bark using my pressure washer and the look of the worm tunneling is amazing.
I often stain the wood "Gun-stock" in color.
Do any of you guys select worm tunneled wood?
