Have any pipe makers used White Oak burl which is just as hard if not harder than Briar damn near impossible to cut with a chainsaw without sparks flying to make a pipe I have a huge chunk of it that got off a customer's log when I saw milled for them and I had it evaluated in it's a nice piece of burl and I didn't know

Partially petrified bog oak makes very good pipes. I prefer the black morta to the brown. Hard to say how long it takes oak to become morta. Tens of thousands of years? More, maybe.

Doesn't oak contain bitter tannins? Bitter tannins that might leach out and show up, uninvited, when hot, steamy, tobaccy smoke passes them by on its way into a mouth? Ever eat an acorn?

Just asking.

White Oak is a waterproof oak. It is used for whisky barrels. That said I know there is a smell associated with the oaks, sour it is. If you cover the end grain with paint that will slow down the drying process and it may prevent cracking during the slow drying process. Some lumber will require one year per inch of thickness. GOOD LUCK with the progress. What part of the country was the tree located?
