Pin Oak for turning?

Joe Pack
>I am a very inexperienced bowl turner...really NO experience. Due to our late winter ice storm, I have all the "practice" wood I can play with and burn for a long time. A friend has some 18-24" diameter sections of pin oak I can have (same storm). Should I pick up some of this pin oak? Does pin oak, or any oak for that matter, make good bowls, etc.? Is the wide, open grain a problem?
