Sorry to go a bit off topic here, but seeing its already been raised - can shiro kashi white oak be tempered like hickory?
It's not as soft as hickory and doesn't really dent as easily. If you want to spend a couple hours banging on your disposable practice tool, probably nobody will stop you, but why bother?
