Turning oak

George Fitzpatrick - Springfield MA
>Is oak harder to turn than most other woods? I was recently given some large pieces of oak (been laying around outside for several months), and find that I'm having a lot of difficulty turning it. Maybe my tools are not sharp enough? I have turned maple, birch, cherry, pine and purpleheart without trouble, but the oak seems to be giving me fits. Any input??
