Is oak a good choice of timber for bowls? I have a number of oak logs I got for carving owls and things. How suitable is it, is it food safe? I think I remember somewhere that the tanic acid is not good for storing perishables in? I mean, is there a market for bowls you shouldn't put fruit in?
 
I think there’s much more of a market for bowls that you should put fruit in lol.
Can’t say I’ve ever heard of not putting food on Oak though, it’s metal it reacts to usually.
