Jepson Field Book volume 10 page 88
Description:
Briceland  that purpose so it will take hold of the wheel. Tan Oak gets very hard and after it had worn smooth a man would have to use his leg heavy on a brake to get any returns.  - The close grain of the [Tan Oak] wood and its unifomity is shown by the difficulty of counting the rings. - The wagon-maker says McKee made a set of beautiful furniture for a bedroom out of Madrono -- but he couldn't keep the borers out! Nor can the borers be kept out of Alder.    ::::::::: June 18, 1903  - Mr. C. [?] L. Stone, proprietor of a mill near Garberville has a good opinion of Tan Oak. He saws it up green; sawed up a lot into 7/8 stuff, piled it outside, with cleats between and it checked less than Redwood! This lot was sawed for a man in Briceland who wants it for wainscoting a room. Grants that Tan Oak must be sawed up right away to prevent it checking. He did not treat it at all by soaking or steaming. Says it makes the best fellows for wagons of any wood. - Mr. Wagner says that his company has used it for "felons" also and with great success. He called it felons said I to Mott because they were in for so long! Which is very painful.
