    I guess beautiful, turned, sanded, finished. As to species, not a clue. That guess would be spalted X. The only spalted I know is maple but I doubt it is that.

    If there is one thing I can make perfect every time it is sawdust.

            I'll have two guesses. It's either Walnut or Tasmanian Blackwood. My hubby has just made a hollow form out of walnut which looks just like your wood. Tas blackwood has very definitive colours like that too, and it finishes absolutely beautiful.

              Ironwood is my guess. i just saw some of that stuff but can't quite be positive on what the guy tols me it was. Remember it being really heavy.

                    Pictuers of answer

                    Hi gang. thank you for playing. the reason I posted this , is because, it bluw me away, that we could get any useabale wood out of this bush. I have lived in the mojove deseart for 50 years. and we have these bush's every where. as alot of desearts do. we call them grease wood bush's. they fall apart pretty easy. when you wont them too. but I would have never guessed my self that they was so pretty inside. it brock my heart to have to cut one out of my yard. when ever I have to cut trees or bushs out I ask my hubby to make these petastales out of them for me, for my tamari balls. any way thanks for playing.this is what they look like. the wood that you have mentioned, sounds pretty too. now I would like to see some of that if you have any pictuer. Teresa I never heard of Tasmanian Blackwood. that really sounds nice. your friend Evie.

                      Would you believe Evie I can't find a thing in the place at the moment made of Tasmanian Blackwood. Guess he's sold it all. Will have to photograph his hollow form but seeing as he's done it for our club competition shouldn't put it on here just yet.

                                Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

                                We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

                                He has 4 of the long ones, but we have other sizes that he uses for clamping up his cheese board slicers, another good seller. They go for $35, left over wood from dough board. On late shift yesterday because I took a 2 hour nap around 7. Off to the saw! I have 8 days of shows in 2 weekends! And one...

                                What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
