    • Louis, The bark of an oak tree is not really feasible in this application, however one can make white oak “splits” by repeatedly splitting section of green (wet) oak by half until it is thin enough to weave. The material for a great deal of basket work is done in this way. The Woodwright’s Shop by Roy Underhill, University of North Carolina Press, 1981, features a chapter on making these splits. I am sure there are numerous internet resources available as well.
